We caught Much Ado About Nothing this past summer. Can't beat free entertainment. Talent was exceptional as were the sets and costumes. Bring a lawn chair of you can. Most people brought picnic fare but there were also refreshments for a fee.

We went to watch Much Ado about Nothing. The hillside was packed and the show was well presented. It is a nice free event in Buffalo.

Professional acting, above average staging, sub par sound (if you are not close enough, some of the dialogue is lost). In general it is one of the best ways to spend a lovely summer evening. I will attend every play that is offered.

We saw Taming of the Shrew last summer and it was a brilliant production. Our school age children loved every minute. The cast and crew do a tremendous job. Can't wait for the 2017 season
