They consistently have very fine productions. The issue many people I know have is with their venue. On the top floor of an old wood building with an old elevator and lots of stairs. Use caution if you go.

Impressed with how professional the performance was. The small theater allows everyone to have a good seat. Chairs were a bit uncomfortable.

Fabulous shows, casual, and right on top level of "Level 5" Wilmingtons rooftop bar. Fun place, and always can catch a great show whether it be comedy or a play. Prices are reasonable, seating is plenty, and VIP tbles avail.

Have seen some awe inspiring shows at City Stage. Great musicals geared more toward adult audiences.

Nice small venue in historic building. Great productions. Go to the roof top bar before the show and enjoy the view of the city.
