    If you'd like a nice drink and refreshment at intermission, be sure to order ahead of time. Not only will you get a nice table to sit at, you won't need to stay in line...

    If you're sitting in the first four rows in orchestra, be sure to use the bathroom before the show. Won't be able to return to your seat if you use the bathroom during the show.

    The bar has the best drinks in town. Especially the vodka gimlet and the dirty martini. (not to mention the great plays.)

    The balcony is fine, just stay away from the outside edges right at the railing...the lights hanging below the ledge get in the way of the stage.

    Front row balcony seats have severely obscured views by the railings. You'll have to peek at the actors through the gaps!

    You can order your intermission cocktail before the show starts so it's ready right at the break.

    Not a fan of a lot of the plays produced by ACT. Beautiful venue. Shows that tour there/are brought in by other companies are much better.

    For each play, A.C.T. offers one "pay what you wish" night. See their website for details and get there early! Read more

    Scapin with Bill Irwin is fantastic. Lots of laughs, and a nice adaptation of Moliere's work.

    Do not miss Scapin at ACT. Directed by and starring Bill Irwin, it represents clown at the highest level.
