Q-tips say: Liked the TV show. They encourage audience participation. When NORM comes on stage everyone including the audience yell, NORM! Diane, the ditsy blonde, is well done by this actress along with Sam Malone, a former relief pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, owns and runs Cheers, a cozy bar in Boston, and sarcastic waitress Carla, beer-loving accountant Norm, know-it-all postman Cliff. Yes, go see it and enjoy “Cheers,” where everybody knows your name!
During the intermission audience participants are welcome to get their intermission libations right on the Cheers stage. Yes, they let you bring your drinks into the theater. The Broadway Playhouse is a newer Theater with great acoustics, clean & staggered seats so no one really blocks your view. Many options for restaurant to visit nearby.
What a fun play – no swearing, no talk about drugs, mistreatment of nationalities, race, or other issues or preaching/teaching us a lesson of some sort. Just a fun time with the “Cheers Gang.”
