I was surprised by this theatre. There was no usual line for entry as the team members worked organized and fast. Though the theatre building is old and not very much renovated it's presentable.

However if you're fan of extravaganza of the building, decor, music ensemble then this is place it's not you're type. A simple theatre with good actors
From the outside this theatre looks enormous but it’s actually super compact and some of the audience sit in nooks and crannies around the stage. Absolutely fantastic, high octane and energetic show and well casted! Loved the absolute classic Fiddler on the Roof!
