A very interesting production. The was utilized very well, I loved the way they made you feel like you were a part of the action in a loud boxing ring with only 5 people's hands and feet and some arena lighting. The Kirk Douglas Theater is always...continued

I very much enjoyed this place. A totally different theater experience! My seats were great - 6th row center. Could not have asked for a more delightful evening. Great date night!

We were greeted and invited to play a game (the three stations) in which I won something!
That was great as was the $8 drink with a kick. The actors were great and the only thing lacking was that the story drew us in to a no win situation. ...continued
