The Merrimack Repertory Theatre consistently delivers high quality stage performances without audience members having to deal withe expense and hassle of parking in Boston. Under new Artistic Director Sean Daniels the MRT has been regularly producing world and regional premiers.

Hi, I don't think that you will have a problem. The theater is very well designed, and this particular performance is pretty intimate.
