It is a great theater and has a great variety of shows. It's in a great location with access to a park, lots of restaurants and breweries, for those who are into the craft beer scene.

Do not let the title mislead you. It is a very professional, contemporary, thought provoking work. The theatre is very comfortable and seating well laid out. The location is very convenient with inexpensive parking directly accross from site.
