If you take the Shuttle from West Falls Church, put an alarm on your smart phone for 20 minutes before 11, because they leave to make the last train at West Falls Church.

The production was good though not spectacular.

This was an awesome show. My first visit to wolftrap and i throughly enjoyed it. I wish I had gone to the evening showing instead of the 2pm show simply because this play would have been spectacular at night with the lights and glittery costumes.
