My wife and I have been subscribers for nearly 30 years. We very much enjoy the variety of plays presented during a season despite the occasional clunker, which is not surprising given the efforts made to showcase new playwrights. The quality suffered during the transition to a new artistic director, but he seems to be getting his feet under him.
The main theatre is intimate and comfortable and is a great place to watch a play. I cannot say as much for the upstairs theatre (the Head theatre). When it first opened (about 10 15 years ago?), it was used as an occasional venue for unusual performances, such as cabaret-style presentations. For the past couple years, it has been used for nearly half of the performances and the stage setting has been more traditional. This is not acceptable, given the high cost of tickets. The venue is subject to extraneous noises, the seats are uncomfortable and views of the stage are often obstructed by people sitting in front of you (even if you have some of the "best" seats) because the seats in the orchestra section are not set up on a grade.
