Went to the pre-production of Frozen. Wonderful experience as always. The Buell is simply top notch. We always look forward to a show at the Buell. DCPA does a wonderful job with all the productions at the theater.

Went to see The Illusionists with the wife and child. Brought tickets at the last minute and had stool seats, but more comfortable than I thought. Great views and sound. Wished they had discounted tickets for kids. Silly to spend full price for a child.
