Small intimate venue, basically in a converted chapel. I almost missed the location. Just a reminder to use the restroom before Book of Liz starts because there's no intermission, and the "concession stand" is cash only.

I love Steve Martin so when I saw his name I jumped at the chance to see what this group did with his writing. I was laughing at all the comic line, thinking about all the serious ones and the time flew by. I would recommend this play to everyone.

Very entertaining performance in an intimate setting, up close and personal. The actors were as professional as any troupe and the production was impressive for a boutique community theater.

This is my second time at this great little theater in the back room of a stone church.
I love the intimate experience as the audiance is set up to sit on three sides of the stage and from where I was sitting the actors came within inches of me....continued

Quotes & Highlights

“Mercilessly comic … its double entendre wording is just a hoot. This cast … gives the words a salacious boost that keeps the laughs coming and coming. It’s such juicy fun to watch.” —ForAllEvents.com
“Nobody gives smirk like (Steve) Martin, and the company at Custom Made Theatre delivers the laughs. Lots of them…. Sexy fun. There are Jewish jokes. There are German jokes … There are old people jokes, fat people jokes, jokes on the bourgeoisie. There’s some alarming business with a sausage. And, this being Steve Martin, there is even a banjo joke.” —TheatreStorm.com
“If you are looking for an evening of non-intellectual fun laced with inoffensive sexual innuendo, wrapped in physical comedy … go to the compact and attractive Custom Made venue on Gough Street. … AJ Davenport dominates the stage with her entrance and exits conveying her sexual suppression in a series of hot flashes.” —_TheatreWorld _
