Bldg is an old school refurbished as art center. Lots to look at and 2 blocks from shops and restaurants. Nice size auditorium. Production was excellent. Decent lighting and set. Very good acting, super professional. One of my favorite plays for many years and thanks Emerson Umbrella for doing it.

First time seeing a play here. Saw Evita which was fantastic.. All seats appeared to have good views of the stage. Small auditorium so not overwhelming. Acoustics great. Acting outstanding. Only issue was the seats - a little uncomfortable - - used to be an elementary school- we assume with more donations they will be upgraded.
