It really surprised me! When I first got there I didnt know what to expect considering it was a small stage with no curtain. However, they made it work, and the acting was very good!!! :)
I had a great time! It wasnt sugar coated, and it was very real and full of emotion.
Ample street parking.

I loved the acting and a lot of the writing - in particular the dialog was incredibly natural, especially between husband and wife characters. I didn't give it 4 stars because I felt the 'wrap-up' was weaker than the rest, and some plot points...continued
The Idea Man takes us into that great gaping gulf between labor and management. In leaps Al, a sharp but underachieving line worker, who drops a suggestion in “the box” on how to improve the machine he’s tied to, which is so brilliant it could revolutionize the industry. His prize: a one hundred dollar check and a plaque. The corporate bosses see it as a win-win windfall. But Al’s got other ideas.
This biting commentary on class warfare by playwright Kevin King with award-winning director David Fofi at the helm will take you into the trenches, boardrooms, bedrooms, and barrooms of today’s industrial world where exploitation is a given.
