Super fun story, very nice play, was a pleasure to see it and really enjoy it! The theater was small ,but very cute one, in intermission time , there was an easter play with eggs, delicious cookie and soda! Can't be more perfect to spend Sunday...continued

Fantastic and funny play. Actors/actresses were pros - good acting. Intermission was about 15/20 minutes. This theatre always manages to have a full crowd of patrons -- not an empty seat for this play!!
