Parking is mainly on the street but not too difficult since the surrounding businesses are closed for the evening.

One of the best productions I've seen in a long time. The acting was fantastic. Great little theatre. Get your tickets asap. You don't want to miss this one.

Speaking for myself, the 12 others who joined me, and two who tagged along with their own tickets - all 15 of us thought The Paris Letter was great!

A big discussion item at dinner after the play - the acting well done, characters well...continued

Description

Before Stonewall, when “Are you a friend of Dorothy’s?” was code for “Are you gay?,” when you went to a psychiatrist to cure homosexuality — a man could marry, have kids and “prove” he was straight. This play affirms the bonds between human beings and takes us on an electrifying journey through time to show the struggle of a man born one generation too early. Sandy Sonnenberg lives a life of privilege which lulls him into believing he is untouchable. His extra-curricular affairs are buried – until he becomes entangled in a disastrous financial scheme which cuts the thin thread that ties him to a conventional life.
