There are variety of restaurants in walking distance from the theatre. That night we chose Miguel's Cocina, 2444 San Diego Ave. We love the food and their fresh chips and homemade white queso dip is to die for. The theatre bar offers beer, wine, soda, snacks, and some adult mixed drinks.

We generally enjoy Cygnet's productions, but, sorry, this one was just not for us. Boring, cold, sad, just DOA. But the actors were - as always - outstanding. The theatre-going experience is to be challenging, stimulating and thought-provoking....continued

Quotes & Highlights

“…[a] tremendously mature and multifaceted portrait of the American…at the dawn of the 21st century…goes to the very core of this country’s identity” —_Chicago Sun-Times _

Description

Pulitzer Prize winning author of August: Osage County, Tracy Letts creates the tale of a luxury sedan, a church pew and visits to a nursing home that form the comfortable round of Ken Carpenter’s daily life. And then one night, he awakens to find that he no longer believes in God. This crisis of faith propels an ordinary middle-aged man into an extraordinary journey of self-discovery. This wickedly funny and spiritually complex play examines the effects of one man’s awakening on himself and his family.

Adult language and themes.
