The day we went the play was sold out. Be sure to check before you go if you think you can just walk in and they will have tickets, not necessarily so.

This is an above average evening at the theater. Very good all the way around. Could have have been a little shorter though.

GREAT ACTING!! This production is something that you don't want to miss. So you think it is call the WHALE; because it deals with obesity (just wait and see). Charlie's obesity only opens up the door to EACH character ISSUE(s).

Great performance. Complex plot wonderfully acted by excellent cast. Paul Calandra's portrayal of the obese Charlie was superb.
