Featured Member Reviews: Budget Edition

Show-Score | By Ryan McCarthy | Nov 1, 2016

Every Tuesday we're turning the spotlight on some of our favorite member reviews. Today we're looking at shows with tickets for $25 or less, such as "Career Suicide", "Finian's Rainbow", and "Paris"!

Theater may provide nourishment for the soul, but one thing it distinctly does not provide nourishment for is the pocketbook! Today we're looking at member reviews for shows that you can see without breaking the bank.
