  • I loved the shortened (about 85 min,) version of the play. My husband would have been happier with the unabridged version but I never would have been able to sit on that stone wall for the long versio...  more »
  • I have been here twice now. Once in a group with my high school and once just me and a friend and both plays were excellent. Also all the decorations and the history is amazing.  more »

  • The play was a modern take on William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. It was wonderful! I am already planning another visit. I would like to walk through the garden next time.
  • Support live theatre - It makes a difference in our community! Excellent programming with a season that reflects not only our city but the entire state of Alabama. There is something for everyone. With the reinstated repertory, you can see multiple productions each month. A fantastic national theatre right here in Montgomery!
  • We saw the play " Sugar Magnolia". It was a small intimate theater. The production was professional and the cast was top notch. Highly recommend this to everyone.
  • I've had good times. I've had bad times. But know this, fellow Alabamians: No pictures are allowed within these sacred halls. Even if your fellow man has been taking pictures for practically the entire time you have been here... Be warned, for the employees shall come after you and take your soul. Basically, just be careful. This place is scary sometimes. The plays are usually pretty alright, though, and it definitely adds to Alabama as a state having such a grand place in it. Overall, thanks for helping the state be somewhat better.
  • Very nice facility and good selection of plays. Concessions were available and offered a decent selection at a premium price. The play itself was good and performed very well. Seating was tight and a lot of people were crammed into the theater. We were seated in the octagon and there simply was not enough leg room.
