Casual dress, arrive early - open seating - although all seats have good view of stage, as the theater is small.

Look for the Hub Theatre Co. sign as the Swayze Theatre is not marked.

The theatre is small but very charming. The way they use the stage area is very creative. The actors are talented and fun. I enjoyed the tumultuous production and would recommend it. I even got a chance to play with bubbles! Yea.

Great show overall. Loved Kristen Garaffo's performance especially - what a voice! Was a little confused as to when I should use the bubbles they gave me - it's at the end. Have your bubbles ready!

I specialize in adaptations of Greek tragedy for the modern stage, but even though I had reviewed it only a dim recollection of the Woolly Mammoth's production of Big Love at the Kennedy Center in 2002 remained....continued
