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.

Nice adaptation. I watched the movie two days before the play, which was very helpful in following along. I attended with two friends. One had never seen the movie and, while she appreciated the performance, she was absolutely lost with the story...continued
