I thought the new theatre was just delightful. The Homestead Crossing charaters were realistic, fun, held my attention, and were captivating to watch. The only thing I did not like was all the pointed negative comments about Christianity from the young characters without a more mature or understanding dialogue from the two older actors. I could have enjoyed a discussion between them regarding it, but there was none.

I did, however, enjoy the concept that we all seem to repeat patterns in life.
