Although we don't tend to dine out before or after plays, there are several places to eat right there by the theatre.

Very good performances. I thought the actors were truly in the moment. Another good, solid play by Rebecca Gilman and well worth seeing. Eclipse Theater Company has never disappointed me. Can't wait to see what they do next. -Scott (Organizer)...continued

Description

Eclipse Theatre presents Rebecca Gilman’s Blue Surge, directed by ensemble member Anish Jethmalani. The story of two small-town cops who try to arrest and then help a pair of prostitutes working at a local massage parlor, Blue Surge examines issues of class and social dynamics with brutal honesty and surprising humor. Gilman explores the small space between hope and hopelessness as her characters struggle to find an American Dream in which they can believe.
