You can sit at a regular table or at an elevated bar table. Either provides a great view of the performance. The performance takes place in various parts of the room. Lighting is great. Sound and acoustics are magnificent. If your view is blocked by part of the architecture, it's only for a few minutes. Also, there's so much other activity going on that you're not really missing the center of focus. Everything feeds into the entire performance.ROAR info • Sep 16 2014 star this tip starred
Getting into the theater is not the traditional mode. No matter what your abilities (handicapped accessibility is at the rear), you enter via the back door. To do otherwise means you literally crawl over all the people already seated in order to get to the back of the room and be told to stand in line at the back door.ROAR info • Sep 16 2014 star this tip starred

What Rockwell T&S is trying to do is fantastic - their efforts to bring live entertainment to the community in this creative way, leveraging their intimate setting, should be applauded (loudly). This show was the 6th in a series dedicated to filmmakers; they have a small ensemble cast that recreates famous scenes from the director's filmography and sings selected songs from each chosen movie. The cast is solid, with a couple of people who stand out a little above the rest, but overall they work well together. Dinner theater, even cool ones like this, cannot be easy on the performers - and these guys do a fine job.
Scorsese films are not known for standout female characters, and the show content suffers a bit when they stick in minor, forgotten scenes from The Departed or The Aviator just to give the actresses something to do besides background singing. Due to the demands of the content, the men fare better in the show. Goodfellas was certainly the biggest hit overall - and they open with that, which means the rest of the show doesn't quite catch up to the level of audience excitement that the first 30 min. or so has. Not sure how they chose the sequence, but they might want to consider switching things around and having Goodfellas be the entire 2nd act... just a thought. Oh, and the band is quite impressive btw - very versatile and could really perform any song well, regardless of genre.
As expected, the tables are packed tightly and service is somewhat slow. We had premier seating, which basically puts you right up against one of the actual stages (there are a few), so you're unintentionally sharing the spotlight at times (the action moves all around the room, including on top of the bar). Next time, we'll most likely get regular seating but show up early to grab decent seats (some have partially blocked views due to support columns in the way) - I think the show would have been more enjoyable from seats further back from the stage and higher up.
The food and drinks were surprisingly good, tho I'd recommend the fish over the lamb. Since the meal is worth enjoying and the performances are worth paying full attention to, get there early (they actually started seating closer to 7 pm) and try to be done with your meal before the show starts, then sit back with your 2nd drink and take in the performances. It's a great series that makes for a fun evening - definitely worth checking out, especially at Goldstar prices!
