We brought a picnic, parked across the street from the theatre and had a lovely picnic in Lincoln Park's lovely rose garden.

No bad sitting, it's a compact theater and the stage is right there a few feet away

I've hear about this musical for yrs, the song "Try to remember" is a favorite.The actors were just fantastic!The staff very helpful & friendly, inviting all to new season at good prices. I just really didnt like story line or other songs much.

Good performances and great voices, but the show is somewhat dated. Great venue.
