We love Sunday shows because we can have a light meal, appetizers and a beverage or two before the 6pm show at one of the many restaurants across the train tracks. Kentro is yummy as is El Amerikano, best spicy margarita :-)

Sunday 6pm performance allows for an early dinner/happy hour at some of the restaurants north of the train tracks...we ate at Kentro Greek Kitchen and it was a peaceful and yummy experience.

Description

Comedy-drama about American G.I.s planning a escape from a German prison camp on Christmas Eve 1944, but there’s a problem: one of them is a German spy. Written by actual WWII veterans of Stalag 17_, Donald Bevan & Edmund Trzcinski. STALAG 17 is a riveting drama set inside a German POW camp during Christmas 1944. _Stalag 17 takes the life of a P.O.W. light without any deep or tragic psychological probing into the minds of men in war. However, under the circumstances that these characters are held, the plays light touch of humor is what keeps the men’s spirit up while they wait for the war to end. Because of the play’s Broadway success, it was subsequently turned into a movie by Billy Wilder that won William Holden his only Academy Award. In the sixties television created a very lighthearted spin off of the film called Hogan’s Heroes.

With colorful characters, a riveting plot and themes that parallel current events, Stalag 17 presents an alternative to the usual Christmas staples.
