Enjoyed Spring Awakening when it first opened on Broadway. Thought it would be nice to relive the memory in a small way. There was nothing small about the production except the venue...and the price! The actors, orchestra, costumes, sets and lighting were top notch. Returned...More

We liked the location, the size of the venue and its warmth and romantic feel. The performances are entertaining, wholesome and they do a wonderful job of educating young people in the arts.

We have been to a couple of plays here. Acting is generally professional. Fun place to go to see a play. Comfortable Seats. Smaller more intimate venue.

Love the shows at the Hangar. We were season subscribers for many years until one year (fall 2012) we resubscribed for the new season (Summer 2013), and they ended up cutting the number of plays in the spring from 5 to 4 with no refunds...More
