Great theatre that doesn't kill your wallet. Tickets $25 and $10 (students with ID). Comfortable, easy to book, easy to get to. Production we saw not my taste, but companion liked it. Would look for other venues here in a heartbeat.

I recently saw "Antigone" here -- outstanding, innovative performance. The ticket price was well worth the performance. While I expected a good performance I was really amazed at how it exceeded my expectations.
