Without doubt, one of the most enjoyable performances I have seen anywhere in a very long time. Well written, produced, directed, and performed. I feel fortunate and proud to live (for 47 years) in a place where we have this quality of performing art availble. What a special thing!

I saw "The Producers" there and was very surprised at the quality of the cast, sound, and entire production. You will enjoy a play here if you enjoy the arts.

Recently saw Sweeney Todd production. Costumes and sets were awesome and the performers were very talented and professional. With the coming renovations for better seating, this will be a great place to visit.

I have to say that this is one of my favorite musicals.
