This show was delightful!! The Cape May Stage theater is comfortable and charming. A good view from all seats. The dinner/show package was a great deal..we ate at the Blue Pig and had a delicious meal.

Poorly done attempts at cleverness by poking fun at various groups of people using stereotypes went overboard when the parody of the first christmas was deeply offensive.More
