I was completely satisfied with everything on our first visit tonight. It was opening night for 'Middletown' and everything went flawlessly. The actors were extremely talented, the facility is small and intimate, the production was very professional, and there were treats. Recommended.

We have watched many plays at "The Black Box" Theatre over the last 20+ years. The people are nice and the atmosphere is simple, yet accommodating. Some plays are excellent, others ok but we always enjoy it!

"Nora" -- an Ingmar Bergman adaptation of Ibsen's "Doll house" (currently running) is well acted and well directed. You can see the emotion in the actors' faces. This is a serious play, not light fare. The space is intimate. There is seating on three sides,...More

I have season tickets and have enjoyed every play I've seen there. It's a small theatre so every seat is good. The current play is hilarious - Greater Tuna.

Intimate theater setting and plays which variously make you laugh or cry or just challenge your thinking. Peter and Ceil are wonderful supporters of the arts in the city.

The theater may be old and small but we have never been disappointed in the show.. The actors have such talent. Great value too!
