We have been to Freefall several times and I can honestly say I have enjoyed every production. Even the productions that I was on the fence whether to go or not, I enjoyed. For the quality of the shows, the price is excellent.

We saw the play Marie Antoinette. It was our first visit to this theater, which is a great venue, and they put on a excellent show.
