Set design & use of space was interesting, They chose not to use the house seats at all & brought 50 chairs onto the stage to create a thrust stage design (audience on 3 sides), It made the space for set/set design VERY limited. Felt intimate, but...continued

Went to a matinee April 22. Counted 14 people in the audience. The play and the cast deserved many more. A real good production.

About the Ticket Supplier: Bohemian Theatre Ensemble

BoHo Theatre’s mission is to create bold theatre that challenges convention through innovative storytelling and unites artist and audience in the examination of truth, beauty, freedom and love through the lens of human relationships.

BoHo Theatre’s vision is to create a shared community of artists and patrons in which all members are moved through art to make thoughtful, well-examined, caring relationships the highest priority in their lives

Being “Bohemian”:
Bohemia is not so much a place on a map but a timeless concept that knows no geographic boundaries. The Bohemian recognizes that cherishing all aspects of art is tantamount to progression of mankind as more than just a living being.

BoHo’s values are defined by the following guiding principles:

The incorporation of the arts as a whole, including dance, music, visual art, graphic design, and other artistic disciplines.

An artistic emphasis on the importance of relationships.

Securing, maintaining, and nurturing the artist’s process.

An artistic focus on introspection.

Storytelling through innovation.

An artistic and organizational commitment to transparency.
