A little bit of audience participation so if you don't want that, stay out of the first row. If you drink, take some into the theatre. There's popcorn available - I think it's free.

There are some casual dining options close by - first is the Nile on 55th Street for Middle Eastern cuisine. Medici on 57th Street is a campus classic, but can be crowded at dinner time. There are also new options on 53rd Street - Promontory, A10 and Yusho, but these will require parking and then moving your car or a long walk - plan accordingly.

This play is great and will only get better further into the run. The acting is outstanding, especially the female lead.

I laughed. I cried. I didn't read many reviews beforehand so I was totally surprised by the interesting twist during the play. Very well done.

I was a little skeptical at first, but the Mountaintop play was awesome, a must see event! The characters were convincing and connected well to each other. The surprise twist is intriguing! Going to tell and encourage my friends to see this...continued
