Coterie Theatre Reviews
I took my grandson (six). He thoroughly enjoy the play and was attentive the whole hour. Pleasant atmosphere and was reasonable priced. more »
We went to go see a performance at the Kotary theater at Crown Center. Bonus because it’s free parking on the weekend! The theater is inviting and is wonderful, intimate, and full of energy. more »
Clean, comfortable, prompt and professional. I mean, the line to get in went fast. My Wife wasn't with us and they were understanding. They let her come in without a ticket, trusting her to come back with one, which made things easy. The kids all get to sit up near the stage, and the staff are attentive regarding child spacing and safety (although some parents definitely check out!). The age range was big and the kids loved it. The actors were high quality and energy. The costuming was creative and immersive. The stage crew was invisible, which is about as high a compliment as they get (previous stage crew member speaking). I really liked the chemistry of the lead actors playing Piggy and Gerald, they seemed to really like and appreciate ea h other which obviously helps their portrayal. The squirrels were great and might have stolen the show if the leads weren't so strong. Anyway, bring your kid here it's a lot of fun, and an excellent place to start their appreciation of theater.
We had a great experience at The Coterie. We saw Elephant and Piggie's "We Are In A Play." It far exceeded our expectations. They held the attention of the audience which was full of young kids on up to older adults. The acting was top notch. I love how small the theater is- there's not a bad seat in the house. We're so glad to support this little theater. We can't wait to come to another show.
