There are lots of casual dining options on Lake St (one block S) in case you want to eat indoors before the show.

It's a good idea to get early and score seats up front. We thought we did, but then a couple decided to sit down right in front of us in packable chairs!

Beautiful setting under the stars to relax and enjoy the play. Bring your lawn chairs and a picnic to enjoy before the play!

Powerful performances by the cast, especially the two lead roles. Play is as relevant today as it was in the 1925 setting. Performed outdoors in park made it very pleasant.
