Re: “Magical Mystery Dinner Theater

In 10 years of living in Tucson, this is the worst idea I have ever suggested to my friends and family. No Mystery here give it up, the acting is pitiful, food beyond explanation and yes what was that white "sauce". Definately NOT for children bordered on pornograhic. No words can describe how I wanted to just get up and walk out like some of the other tables did but having paid $39.00 a person we saw it through to the end. One would think after 40 years you would just get better, not the case with this one, please fellow theater goers pass this one up......

Re: “Magical Mystery Dinner Theater

This was the biggest waste of 3 hours of my life and a total rip-off. Lame dialogue, props, talent and definitely not kid-friendly despite what the delusional owner said. The biggest MYSTERY of the night was what the heck what the white stuff that was poured all over the "chicken." Better Business Bureau, it's time to close the longest running Mystery dinner show in Arizona.......Please.

Re: “Magical Mystery Dinner Theater

If there was a ZERO star that's what I would rate this place as. The owner - ROSS HORWICTZ - hung up on me when I called and was inquiring about seating arrangements and he would not honor a certificate to his own establishment! DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND HARD EARNED MONEY TO GO TO THIS ESTABLISHMENT!!! I would reccomend finding something else to spend over a hundred dollars on! Oh, and by the way, gratuity of 18 percent is automatically tacked onto your bill!!! So you're tipping even if you are not satisfied which in my opinion makes me think that there were a lot of unhappy customers and had to start that policy!

Re: “Magical Mystery Dinner Theater

This place is incredible! It’s a delicious 3-Course candle-lit dinner being served as part of the story line of a hilarious interactive murder mystery whodunit 3-act play. The play's set at a magic show so we got to see some magic performed and someone actually sawn in half. Volunteers from the audience are allowed to come on stage for some of the scenes. Someone even wins a prize at the end for solving the mystery. Everyone had a great time and we'd def go back again.

Highly Recommended... YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!

Re: “St. Francis Theatre

LOVE this group! I've seen three of their plays, and returned to see all of them twice. The actors are enthusiastic and extraordinarily talented, especially with musicals. The theatre itself is very small, which makes everything so much more intimate. It's great to be able to see every emotion on the actors' faces no matter where you sit. Their set is my favorite part; most of their productions use a variation on an all-black set with minimal set design, allowing them to produce plays with broad settings and many scene changes. Surprisingly, it works extremely well! Definitely recommended!

Re: “St. Francis Theatre

My husband and I look forward to the enthusiastic, entertaining shows put on by the group at studio connections. The actors have a great time on stage and that, in turn, makes the audience have a great time! We've seen four shows there so far and cannot wait to see more! Each time we wind up taking along more and more friends, it's just so entertaining and fa un way to spend an evening!

Re: “Invisible Theatre

BETSY KRUSE CRAIG IS ONE OF THE MOST TALENTED , FINEST ACTORS IN TUCSON. IF YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN HER PERFORM YOU HAVE MISSED ONE OF THE VERY TALENED ACTORS ANYWHERE. SHE PLAYED FOUR PARTS IN GUN METAL BLUES AT THE INVISABLE THEATRE IN DEC 2008, MANY PLAYS AT THE GASLIGHT THEATRE AND MANY OTHER PLACES..

Re: “Beowulf Alley Theatre Company

I watched their performance of "Rabbit Hole" last night. It is probably the best play I have ever seen, and their production of it was fabulous. The acting was superb with the intensity the story needed. It is a very moving play and it will get you thinking and talking. Go see it.

The facility itself is great. It is small and one has a good view of the stage from everywhere. I was way off to the side in the next to last row, and never felt like I was missing anything.

Re: “Tucson Music Hall

We purchased the 3rd price tier level of tickets for Spamalot ($42)and were shocked to find out how high the seats were up in the upper balcony. There were only 4 rows after us (making it the furthest from the stage) and we wondered WHY we bothered to purchase those tickets when the $27 were virtually the same. We found ourselves STRAINING to hear and understand the words. Acoustically, the upper level is HORRIBLE. The production was good but they do need to do something about the poor sound in the upper areas (or drastically lower their prices).
