Back story: The Willows Theatre has been hit hard by our national economic problems. In order to stay afloat they closed the doors on the Concord theater and moved all operations to a smaller theater in Martinez. Marty and I have been less than pleased by the plays. No money, no professional actors. The plays were more like poor high school productions. In fact we walked out on one. Some have been so so and one drama was good. We struggled with the question of renewing our subscription. We decided to give them one more season.

Marty and I went to the Willows Theatre last night. We saw You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown. The Willows is back! This play was performed at the professional level we expect from the Willows. We had a great time. The voices were excellent, acting excellent, dancing excellent. I give this performance an A+.

It will be running until June 6, 2010. Check the website and buy your tickets. You might even want to check Gold Star. Many times you can find bargain tickets there.
