    Two theatres. We've seen multiple plays at both but the Wurtle-thrust stage is the best. Every seat is great. Great views. Nice staff.

    Pay-at-a-machine-just-before-you-go parking ramps don't work very well at the theater where everyone leaves at once. Use a credit card at the exit -- it still will take a while to get out of here.

    It's an attractive and efficient lobby once you get the hang of it, and most of the plays are extremely well-done. They bat about .750 on their Shakespeare.

    Sign up for their mailings and emails to get lots of special deals. Or just show up an hour before the show and get in the rush line. The performances are worth full price, but cheaper is better.

    HMS Pinafore is one messed up production. It can't decide what it wants to be. The music, choreography and staging were laughable. And not in a good way. Cast was fine but they couldn't save it.
