This is my second year as a season ticket holder and Engeman productions never disappoint. If you don't valet (which can be time consuming when the theater lets out) parking can be a challenge so suggest you get there early and take in a stroll...More

I have seen all but two of the Engeman's productions since it's opening 10 years ago. Every one has been an exciting, fun, dramatic, beautifully done experience. The theater is gorgeously decorated. There isn't a bad seat in the house. And plenty of leg room...More

The actors are professional, most broadway quality. The seats are comfy and spacious compared to NYC theaters. The sound system is perfect all the way to the back of the theater. There are all kinds of restaurants within walking distance. This place is the best!

We saw “Newsies” which was excellent. The theater is very comfortable and well maintained. Lots of pleasant helpful staff. The bar opens an hour before showtimes and they really push the drinks both at the bar and with waiter service in your seat at intermission....More

I've been here twice, once with my grandkids, and once with my daughter. It is a very lovely local theater, with plenty of leg room. I would recommend it.

No. Most attendees dress in casual attire, but I have seen people wearing "date night" clothing at evening performances.
