We ate at the terrace restaurant which is always a treat. There is another self serve restaurant at the terrace level which is quite nice as well. Both are aware that you are trying to get to a show so the service is geared to making sure you get out in time.

The weather was light rain, but mild. I wore a sweater, dress shirt & tie with dress pants and shoes. Saw other people dressed casual and some really dressy. Broad selection.

Great seats, terrific performance! The arias were just beautiful! The set was very simple, yet gorgeous! I would recommend it to others.

What an absolutely delightful evening this was. All of the principals were in top form, especially Sarah Coburn as Adina. It was well sung and acted, and the comedic bits were quite funny. A nice way to begin the weekend.
