We enjoyed dinner very much. A three course meal for the price was worth it let alone then adding the entertainment. We laughed most of the show. The songs and skits were so much fun.

I really don't like being the bearer of bad news, but this experience is awful - but so awful I feel it has to be done (hence the 3 stars instead of 1). Amateur and unprofessional, it was badly organized from start to finish. There were clips from silent movies played for what seemed like forever. I figure the unending... More

Gareth Walpole was great and would do well in any theatre but the script and any further talent was absent. I was actually stunned and felt as if we were trapped in a bad 70's movie. Every cliche in the book was used and the experience was like scratching chalk up a blackboard. The food was even worse! We ordered... More
