Gorgeous theatre. Went to see a guest speaker and also was interested in the theatre. Worth on both. Theatre is operated as a nonprofit and appears to be well supported by the community.

Nicely staged & Wallace Shawn was brilliant as Narrator. Couple this with Piazzolla's “Primavera porteña”/ “Oblivion”/ “Libertango” for a memorable evening. I'd certainly like to see more of the piano Duo, Anderson & Roe!
