I have bought a subscription to TFANA for the past few years. They are a progressive theater company dedicated to producing and staging excellent plays at affordable prices. Last year we saw plays from Ionesco to Shakespeare.

I've seen a few shows at this theatre and have loved the experience. The theatre itself is only a couple years old and they built it with the audience in mind. The seating is set up in a way that everyone has a good view....More

Small though modern theatre with light snacks and beverages available in the lobby. Restrooms limited to ground floor which is bit of bother when you are in the balcony. Supports new productions of classical drama pieces and original theatre that is difficult to find elsewhere....More
