I've seen multiple shows at this venue, and they're all very professionally done, and almost always entertaining. The theatre is also in a great location in Westboro with lots of great restaurants nearby for dinner.

Great place to take in a show. Small and intimate theatre. Great shows! Have never been disappointed there yet. I am glad this theatre has survived. Always great to have a vibrant arts scene in any city!
