Have private parking lot, but we found a space on the street on this Sunday matinee. Not sure whether that would be available for evening performance.

His work is head and shoulders above...continued

  • “An atmosphere of mythic mystery suffuses Tarrell Alvin McCraney’s compelling drama about family, sacrifice, and deceit … Director Finney enacts the goings on with urgency and vigor, and the cast delivers ferociously intense and organic acting work … affecting both as a work of folklore and as a gritty commentary on the role of African Americans in contemporary American society.” —Stage and Cinema
