We enjoyed dinner in the patio of the Cosmopolitan Hotel having parked in Cygnet's designated parking lot first and then did the 1 1/2 block walk.

This theater will only seat you in the last 2 rows no matter what the seating availability or when you purchased your tickets. Goldstar does not state this in the description of the seating, only describing the section and providing a seating chart. Very misleading.

It was an odd play. I'm glad that I saw it, but I wouldn't go see it again. Leaving the theater I thought to myself that it reminded me of some of my own writing, which is why I'm not recognized today as a play-write. The acting was fine, but...continued

A Behanding in Spokane was GREAT....Very Quentin Tarantino-esque. Super intense, funny, and the acting was superb. I highly reccommend it!!!

It was a preview but the actors were not in tune with the dark humor of the play. The laughs were few and far between as a result.

Description

All Carmichael wants is a hand… his hand.

A Behanding in Spokane is the hilarious dark comedy from award-winning Irish playwright, Martin McDonagh (In Bruges, The Lieutenant of Inishmore). The title is just the starting point; take a man searching for his missing hand, two con artists out to make a few hundred bucks, and an overly curious hotel clerk, and the rest is up for grabs.
