A small theater with not a bad seat to be had. We saw “Fun Home,” a substantial serious musical. This was an example of what the center can do. Fine acting, singing, music (live!) and choreography. Imaginatively staged production of great quality.

Ourselves, and another couple went to see the comedy routines last Friday night. We didn’t know what to expect; because a lot of stand up Comedians tend to be vulgar, mock the audience, and are not very funny. Which is why we haven’t been to...More

We attended Ragtime recently. The performance and staging far exceeded our expectations. Ragtime premiered in 1996 and was a Broadway revival last year. Written 22 years ago, the playwright anticipated today’s divisive issues on immigration, race and elitism. A big ensemble to stage Ragtime. There...More

Delighted to see "Thoroughly Modern Millie" in this charming barn/theater. Fun and entertaining, the cast gave an engaging performance. Hoping to see another musical or play here.

Original musical revues like this winter's David Bowie tribute are over the top, Broadway quality and absolutely professional. We've also taken students to kids' daytime productions, also with the same high production values.
