This is our second time at the theatre - both using goldstar tickets. Again, we were not disappointed. The acting was superb. The theatre is easy to get to and good parking across the side street.

Two little gems. All 4 actors were excellent. The staging of "A little trick" was very original and effective. "Afterplay" by Brian Fiel is wonderful, very Chekhovian indeed and Michelle Osherow and David Dubov were a perfect match. A total...continued

Excellent actors, A Little Trick a bit too wordy/long for us. Since there was so much dialogue, it would've been very helpful to have the 2 actors miked. Still--worth every penny and fine acting.

The second act was very long, but the acting was phenomenal. I wasn't a huge fan of the plot. You have to be a Chekhov fan to enjoy the first act otherwise you're sorely disappointed with the plotline.

Excellent small theater production. I will definitely be looking for more of their events.

I thought "A Little Trick" was very well done. The actors played their roles in a believable fashion. I loved the costumes.

"Afterplay" may be the more compelling play, except that Michele Osherow has a very tiny voice and in certain parts, she...continued

We'd never attended a Quotidian Theater production before and were impressed with the quality of the acting. Very well done.
