Avoid D'Augustino's pizza. It is right around the corner but service was terrible. After waiting 50 minutes for our food, it had not arrived and the server was clueless. We left without eating but did make it to the play on time.

I thought this was an interesting play. I've never been to this venue before and although it was small, the acting/set, etc were really well done. I would definitely go back to see something else!

I enjoyed this play a lot. The characters were quirky enough to be funny, but not too much so as to be unbelievable.

A laugh-out-louder. Much more theatre than I expected. Actors overplayed their characters a bit for such a small venue but they were well directed and the play was well staged. I would give it more stars but I cannot move my curser any farther...continued

Wayne moves to a one-room penthouse apartment on Russian Hill, and immediately things change. His coworkers are eager to see his new place, and the rules in his new environment include sharing one refrigerator and one bathroom with his fellow residents! On top of it all, Wayne’s landlady, Mrs. Walker, has taken an interest in him and wants to let him in on a little secret. There is something for everyone in this offbeat look at life changes and interpersonal relationships. Will Wayne learn to accept himself as he is, or will he conform to fit the expectations of others?
