The Theater put on the last show of "Evita" for this season and the house was packed, sold out. The performance was wonderful in this old piece of historical land mark. Seating was very good as was the sound. The performers were wonderful.

We are first time season ticketholders to NBCT and have thoroughly enjoyed the performances. The casts for the 2013-2014 season have been exceptional.
