“Well done theater in tropics”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Well produced plays in a great atmosphere. Steps from MallorySquare and cruise docks. Plan ahead and go on line to see what is going to be performed when youre there. Several different plays a season, Easy to order on line. If youre driving, parking right next door.
