Arrive early because parking (free) can be difficult.

GREAT ACTOR---GREAT SHOW! This may have been the last performance at this theater, I'm not sure. But, next time it is performed, go see it! There were two problems with the theater: 1) Too hot. During the first act the actor had to wipe his face over and over with a cloth due to the heat in the theater and I was VERY HOT even though it was a cold winter night. During the intermission, I had to ask the lady selling snacks to "please leave the two back doors open because it's too hot in the theater."...which she did. But, why did I have to ask? Why didn't the theater manager know there was no ventillation and it was too hot inside the theater? 2) The other "problem" is that there were TWO LINES as we waited to enter the theater: a will call line where customers obtained their "tickets" (the play bill). Then, AFTER waiting in the will call line the customers had to wait in a 2nd "waiting to enter the theater line". And both of these lines were NEXT to each other with no seperation between the two lines and no one from the theater to explain that there were two lines....the lines seeming to be ONE line because the lines were right next to each other. There was an unused large table to the left of these two main lines.... that could have been used as "the will call table" which would have provided a way to seperate the lines thus avoiding confusing customers into believing there was only ONE line! This is simple but apparently the administration of this theater wasn't concerned about the comfort of the customers. GOLDSTAR: PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO THE THEATER ADMINISTRATOR IF YOU CAN.

Like others who have reviewed this performance, my teenage granddaughter and I ate at the Thai restaurant a couple doors down from the venue. The food was tasty and not overpriced.

The weather was cool when we attended on November 30th.. I wore Layer, b/c the venue is small and you will not need a sweater once you are seated.

The weather was a little chilly, its right near the water. I wore warm clothes, make sure you bring a sweater or jacket. You will need it after the show especially..

For a great dinner before or after the show, go to Misto Frittos on Colorado and 4th. Excellant food, great service.
