We went to see the play Blue with our 3 year old son. The place is very beautiful, clean; they had games at the lobby for the kids to play. Once we entered the theater, it was organized so the kids could sit on the floor with pillows. My son had a great time! He really enjoyed the play. We loved the message from the story, it taught our young ones about diversity. I want to come back soon.

The staff was courteous and organized. The performance was lively with great sound, music, and actors. Their shows are multicultural.

Kept my 2-year-old's attention for an hour and a half, and entertained me too. Can't ask for more than that

Loved it! They had real people for characters instead of puppets. The actors look like the actual book characters. We had an awesome time!
