First of all, great venue! Staging of The Royale was amazing. Actors were first rate though the story was somewhat predictable. If you know the history of Jack Johnson, this is a good twist on that piece of history. If you don't, this period...continued

The acting was fantastic! Play started on time and kept the audience involved throughout the play from beginning to the end! The festivities in the lobby set up a very relaxing atmosphere and was a lot of fun. I don't want to give away anything...continued

the rhythm of the stage and actors kept it exciting. This was great acting by all the actors and heartfelt by the audience. Make the time to see it as you continue to support the arts.
