The show is 2.5 hours long so take that into account when making reservations for dinner.

We ate at Trattoria La Siciliana, which is about 4 blocks away from the theater. The food is so great, served family style. Make a reservation for before or after the show.

The play lacked some additional singing or special effects. There was far too much dialog amongst the characters for an audience of small children. Will be awhile before we return to this theater.

Description

Unfortunately, he hasn’t finished reading his “How to be an Emperor” guide, but already the townspeople need his help.  What’s a fellow to do?  In comes the Swindler, arguing that clothes make the man – and he has just the outfit.  Will someone call the Swindler’s bluff, or will Marcus show up in front of the whole town in his underwear?  Told through narrative, song, and dancing, “The Emperor’s New Clothes” is guaranteed to delight audiences of all ages!
