all seats are good in this theater, intimate.
I like you can have food and drink in the theater.
Staff very friendly.
Women's bathroom, challenge when there is a line.

Wonderful production. The multi-talented cast switches among their various characters with ease. The adaptation really has the "flavor" of Austen. See it now.

This production was very entertaining and enjoyable. Our Goldstar seats were also great(2nd row in the center section) which gave us an up-close intimate theater experience.

It was a lovely play, my friend and I really enjoyed it especially if you are a Jane Austen fan. We especially love the singing! Also this theater allows for a very intimate experience.

Enjoyed the performance. The Austen prose translates very easily into witty dialogue. There were at least 2 grammatical non-Austen-like errors:..."between him (not "he")... continued

The show was good. The one person acting for multiple roles makes the show a bit confusion. Parking is really inconvenient. I wasn't able to find street parking and ended up paying $12 for garage parking!

Great venue. Loved the adaptation which balanced the love story with the humor so the uninitiated would still have a lovely evening (me), while the dedicated Austenite... continued
