Very professional actors, a wonderfully intimate venue (they even have accommodations for the hearing-impaired). Restaurants and bars nearby. Great value.

This small theatre in Arlington Heights is the ideal setting for intimate performances that take place between the performers and the audience. Friendly, relaxed atmosphere. We go as often as possible.
