We saw the play "A Crack in the Sky" about a Somalian immigrant. The actors were really good and there was basically no bad seat in the theater. The ushers were great. Our tickets were $20 each which I thought was a good price.

The History Center's production of Glensheen was brilliant. Wendy Lehr is a treasure that everyone who loves theater should see. Her talent is unbounded! The rest of the cast was outstanding and gave that ironic comedic reading that let you care about these crazy characters...More

We saw Glensheen at the History Theatre. Excellent productioon! Very disturbing story but they did a great job of "lightening" it up by making it a musical!

Just saw Glensheen. It was even better than we expected! The cast was very talented. Our favorite part was Marjorie's lawyers song and dance! All the actors did a very convincing job in their roles, especially those who played multiple roles. Marjorie had a great...More

Here to see the Highwaymen. Make sure that you allow enough time to find parking. There is a light rail station right outside so that would be a good option.

I saw Orphan Train yesterday on the last day. Wonderful musical. Actors have great voices and acting abilities. Story extremely compelling. The only downside was the smoke. They could have left that out, It was a little distracting. The building is lovely and the seats...More
