I used to subscribe, but now prefer to choose a couple of plays per season. The plays tend to be intense, so the subscription became--what can I say--intense. The cast is unsurpassed, of course!! The recent loss of Martha Lavey will undoubtedly have its effect,...More

I love the small venue. It makes for an intimate experience. We saw Straight White Men, which was great. The actors were brilliant. They even had a short group discussion that we thoroughly enjoyed. Top notch all the way.
