  • I have attended plays here on several occasions and each time has been a wonderful experience. Building and facilities are always well-maintained and very clean. The staff is always courteous and helpful. The cast is always extremely talented and I have no problem going back down memory lane and enjoying myself thoroughly! I absolutely love this place.
  • As always it was a most enjoyable evening. The singers are FABULOUS. The storyline was very interesting. The performer who played Mahalia sound so much Mahalia Jackson. Once again Jackie out did herself. She always select the perfect cast member for each part. It's so amazing to see how she has grown. A long time from Beacom Street. Waiting with much participation for another dream of hers to come to present her restaurant. I know it will happen. Jackie, keep doing what you are doing.
