Try the BeeHive afterwards. Right next door. Great food. Live music. Cast & crew may show up.

We had a rainy afternoon, so we enjoyed the jazz brunch before the afternoon show at the Beehive which is next door to the theater.

exhilarating; little plot or action, yet very involving. I was deeply moved.

Terrific! Mesmerizing! Acting was superb. One of the best plays we've seen. Goldstar's Mezzanine seats were fine.

We truly enjoyed the show - it was entertaining and also educational. I studied American Art in college and really loved the review of my college courses. Definitely would recommend this show.
