Beware: When turning right after walking down the entrance hall there is a small ramp-style step in the floor, leading to a slightly higher floor level. This adjustment is not signed or lit with glowing strips. I tripped on this unexpected rise, and a second member of my party tripped and fell down. A lawsuit waiting to happen! The stairs leading down to the bar are dim as well and need glowing strips to guide the theatergoers.

Very worthwhile! Quick and creative funny people (except for that one guy-- just kidding!) kept us constantly entertained for 90 minutes. The show is built around shout-outs from the audience and a quick schedule of "scene" formulas that...continued
