I scoured the internet for fun things to do over Valentine's Day weekend. Our first dance at our wedding was "I wanna grow old with you" so we decided to buy tickets and come see this musical. To be completely honest, we came in with very low expectations for this small theater that my spouse had never heard of. The... More

My guy and I got a Golden Gavel to see the musical "The Wedding Singer" and I must say I was very pleased with this musical. The Old Log theater is great. It is not huge or overwhelming but smaller with more of a natural feel. The seating was nice and comfortable. The production was phenomenal. The Wedding Singer is... More

All I can say is we left at intermission! Terrible play! Absolutely no dialogue in the play. It was so boring that I could hardly stay awake. I love plays but this was the worst one I have ever attended!

We're sorry you didn't enjoy The Wedding Singer. It was a big musical with tons of songs. I hope you try us again when we open Million Dollar Quartet in the summer. More

This was a wonderful play with two actors. Melissa Hart was fantastic in her role. We have not eaten here. The theater has a beautiful lobby/gathering area. We have never been disappointed in any performance here.

Nice quite place to have a romantic dinner with the wife. Food is outstanding and service was excellent . They do not have a lengthy menu but what they have is a nice variety and a good to great wine list

A high energy musical. Very fun to experience. I watched the matinee with 9 of my retired women friends. Lunch at Maynard or at many of the great eating spots in Excelsior,Mn. The Old log serves good food too. I highly recommend a visit to the theater and my favorite town of Excelsior.
