Theater is hard to find in the large parking lot and many buildings. Allow enough time.

if you know your way around that area I recommend Cafe Caryle is Shirlington. We had a delightful brunch outdoors on a warm Sunday afternoon just before the show and then had about a 10 minute drive to the theater.

Well done performance. Will probably be even better as the run continues. Happy to see so many people in the audience -- this theater ensemble always delivers a fine performance.

This was an enjoyable afternoon. The acting for the most part, was quite good, with a few that were very good. The different characters played by the same person was not confusing to me as each had their own personality.
