I've been here once for a friend's production, and I just loved the whole vibe. It's such a community theater space. I walked into the red and brick building and obtained by ticket from a small corer counter. 10 minutes prior to the show, and older lady opened the door to the stairs and made the announcement. Everybody seemed to know everybody. We all climbed a bunch of stairs to the small theater, which was just a room with seats. And the show was certainly experimental, but obviously taken seriously by its actors. Even though I'm not totally sure what happened, there were laughs, and I enjoyed it.
