Monomoy Theatre

One of our favorite things to do while visiting Cape Cod is to attend one of the dozens of live theater venues.  Chatham, Massachusetts has enjoyed the Monomoy Theatre and the Ohio University Players for 54 years.  There is nothing like live theater, especially in an intimate setting.  The Monomoy has 260 seats, and every seat is a great seat!  The performances are generally comprised of talented graduates, undergraduates, and professionals.  The small setting lends a greater connection with the performers and the characters they portray. 

Our choice of play this year was Man of La Mancha.  Steve French was the most amazing Don Quixote that I have seen since Ed Ames.  We witnessed such an amazing metamorphosis of Mr. French from Miguel de Cervantes to Don Quixote that captivated each of us from the start.  Mr. French truly stole the show.
