We enjoyed The River and all of us enjoyed it very much. The theater does not have a bad seat in the house, and its close to a couple great restaurants to add to the event.

We went to see the new musical, "An Unexpected Joy" at WHAT and were delighted with the modest size of the theater, the great seats, and the Broadway-quality performance. A wonderful asset in the outer Cape.
