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!

Hard to hear being an outdoor event. Very buggy--needs lots of mosquito spray. Not sold out--can always buy tickets at the door

Beautiful evening under the stars. Enjoyed the play. This was our second time attending a play at Oak Park Festival Theater. We hope to get back one more time this summer.

This was a wonderfully acted production of the play. We were completely swept up into the story. Being outdoors on a lovely summer evening only added to the play. We highly recommend it.
