A friend and I attended a play at the theatre earlier this year. It is a small but lovely venue! If an opportunity arises, then a person should definitely take the time to see some local acting in an intimate venue.

The Public Theatre offers a variety of plays throughout its season. All productions are well done and enjoyable. The theatre is small enough that all seats are good. Plan to check out The Public Theatre soon. You will not be disappointed.
