I love going to Boiler Room by myself, with a friend or two, or my entire family. Many of the shows each season are family-friendly, but one or two usually deal with more serious topics that are still carefully displayed. The actors are incredibly talented and a few are integral parts of the community as teachers and coaches for children and teenagers in the acting community. The atmosphere in the Theatre is great because it is such a small, intimate setting. After a show, you really feel like you've been a part of it rather than just an observer like at other theatres. I go to dozens of theatres and this is definitely my favorite.
Pros: Inexpensive, Unbelievably talented, atmosphere
Cons: shows sell out quick
