This is my first negative review, but we had to leave at intermission....we just could not sit and listen to the high pitched attempts at British accents and mannerisms. It was so distracting and annoying that the story was lost. I watched others...continued

It was slow going at the beginning, but then the plot developed. I thought it was a bit long.

The seating in the theatre is somewhat unusual because it is arranged by small tables with 4 chairs per table. It was hard to see the stage and performers. We had the worst seats which were in the back row at the very end next to the concession...continued

Good Show, Excellent cast. I had not been to the playhouse before and it is charming. We sat at table 16, and had a split of champagne while enjoying the play. It was so pleasant and informal sitting at a table rather than a row. The playhouse...continued

I love the Coronado Theater. It is so intimate and friendly. The play was done very well and we enjoyed it very much. I recommend it highly.

The play was well done and a lot of fun. The tables were so close together we had to tilt the very heavy chairs to get to our seats. Sightlines are awkward if more than 2 per table.

I will never again buy tickets for any production at this venue again.
The seating was horrible - it's all on one level and if you're not 5'8 or taller you had better bring a few telephone books to sit on.
The rap music from the event being held...continued

Five were seated at our table. The young man next to used his iPhone throughout the play. The two volunteer ushers seated just behind us were holding a rather extensive conversation [in...continued

Wonderful performances by all, we were quite surprised at the ending. We also enjoyed the table seating and proximity to the concession stands.

Thank you Goldstar and Coronado Playhouse!

Agatha Christie fans will enjoy this show! The entire cast was great, but Clarissa, Sir Rowland, Hugo, and Pippa deserve special mention. The set design was very professional. The only drawback was the "cabaret" style seating, which made for...continued

An excellent value. The performers did a good job with their lines & the material.

Parking was plentiful. It's a nice location and enjoyable place to take a short stroll before going into the playhouse.

An intimate setting, our seats were in...continued

The play was definitely worth attending. I thought the leading lady and her guardian, and the detective were particularly effective in their roles. The detective's assistant appeared very uncomfortable. I liked the venue, the seating...continued

Tickets ordered from Goldstar were waiting for us at the window. This is not our first visit to this theater as we enjoy the small venue. Their staging has always been excellent. This play had a good plot, but was over-acted by some of the cast....continued
