Actually, on a Tuesday night, we were able to find street parking only a short distance away!

We were surprised; we did not see any man with coat and tie! When do people dress up these days?

An excellent 21st century adaptation of Ibsen's classic play. Well acted with a great set. Some adult language.

We had a great time. The actors were all very good and the set was well done as well. We almost never give 5 stars, so consider our rating as 4-1/2.

Great modern day adaptation on the classic Ibsen tale. I wish I could live in the condo they had on stage. It was fabulous. Sarah Agnew was amazing as Nora.

Quotes & Highlights

“Savvy, droll and deliciously caustic” —Variety

Description

Using Henrik Ibsen’s masterpiece A Doll’s House as a springboard, award-winning playwright Rebecca Gilman has crafted a bold and insightful adaptation that transports Ibsen’s classic into 21st century suburbia. With a happily-ever-after ending that is as audacious today as Ibsen’s original was over a century ago, Gilman’s _Dollhouse _raises questions about women and financial independence, marriage and motherhood, and how keeping up with the Joneses may be setting us behind.
