As a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, Steel Beam Theatre is a fantastic resource for our community offering a great variety of main and children's performances. Each affordable and easy to access show brings different actors to the stage to tell a different story. The facility is intimate, making every seat a good one though I'm partial to the third row center. I've seen quite a few extraordinary performances here, truly enjoying each one.
I usually go to the children's productions with my grandchildren. It has been a wonderful way to introduce them to theater and we have truly enjoyed the performances. We like the smallness of the theater and the fact that every seat is a great seat. Looking forward to this season.
I chose 1 star because there was no lower scale to rate this awful theater on.I was drawn in by the wonderful description on the Steel Beam Website and decided to go to a production called "Au Pair Man". This turned out to be a total waste of time. ATTENTION Steel Beam Theater Management: It's sure not very impressive for a patron to walk into a "historical" building and find garbage cans all over the lobby collecting dripping water from your ceiling. The carpet was FILTHY and had water stains all over it.I attempted to ignore the EXTREME smallness of the venue and the cramped, uncomfortable seating because my money was already spent.I was equally disgusted by the blatant racism that was on display disguised as a theatrical performance at this theater. FYI-I am a seasoned theater patron.I have been to MANY theater productions of several types from Broadway to small town theater all over the country.I have NEVER felt moved to actually walk out of a theater mid show before this production (which I did at intermission ).The continual negative references to "dusky people" as well as insulting comments about people of color, especially women was disturbing to say the least. The final insult was that the acting in this production was mediocre AT BEST. This was my first (and final) visit to your theater.I will advise everyone I know not to waste their hard earned money on this theater- was truly the WORST $27.50 I have ever spent for ANYTHING. BEWARE! GO AT YOUR OWN RISK
