Thank you for your review! And we agree with you about Sex With Strangers--we were sorry to say goodbye to that production. It is moving to Geva Theatre in Rochester April 13-30, so other people will get to see it there.

Seats were the correct size...I hate seats that are tight and crammed...these were perfect. One man show of buyer & cellar was delightful. The staff was the perfect hosts.
