The set was a reminder of college theater classes I had taken. Simple with very good use of props. The play was witty, funny, and very well done. Character portrayals were well done with costuming and good acting. Overall a very enjoyable show I would attend once again. I do have one minor complaint, regarding seating. Although there were steps to each row, they were shallow and I had s difficult time seeing the play... I am horizontally challenge ;-)
