“Arsenic and really OLD Lace”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

This is a very nice theater company and the facility is top notch. You are really seated very close to the action. Arrive at least twenty minutes early to be able to get the seating you prefer. Can't recommend Arsenic and Old Lace though. The play was probably funnier in the 1930's and all the actors were overly loud so it didn't feel real.

“Great theatre great time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

We saw arsenic and old lace. It was great, the characters were top notched, and they were really characters . It was very well done, the seats are up close , so you felt you where involved in the play. I highly recommend coming to lanesboro and going to commonweal. You won't regret it, by the way during intermission the snacks are affordable .

“Very professional theater company. We take in a play every time we visit Lanesboro.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

Exceptional quality of performances. Interesting and entertaining plays. We just saw The Memory of Water, and saw two other performances earlier this season. There is one more upcoming performance before the season ends in December.

“Never disappointed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

We recently saw "the Memory of Water". This is our third experience at the Commonweal. We have always even very pleased by the thoughtful productions, as well as the quality of acting. The quality equals or surpasses anything we have seen at other, more well known theaters. This is one of the reasons we'd well continue to visit Lanesboro.
