I always reserve a front row seat for the final performance of each production at the Black Box, whether Ceil Herman directs or a guest director takes the helm. Never been dissatisfied. Actors always know and perfectly project their lines. Each actor is well prepared...More

We have watched many plays at "The Black Box" Theatre over the last 20+ years. The people are nice and the atmosphere is simple, yet accommodating. Some plays are excellent, others ok but we always enjoy it!

"Nora" -- an Ingmar Bergman adaptation of Ibsen's "Doll house" (currently running) is well acted and well directed. You can see the emotion in the actors' faces. This is a serious play, not light fare. The space is intimate. There is seating on three sides,...More

I have season tickets and have enjoyed every play I've seen there. It's a small theatre so every seat is good. The current play is hilarious - Greater Tuna.

What a wonderful theatre and group of actors. You will see the not so mainstream type shows here and you will not be disappointed.

This one-woman play, starring Janet Mazdra, is well worth seeing. Janet does an excellent job, portraying the various ups and downs of this middle-aged woman, Shirley Valentine. The play is funny and moving at the same time.
