Sandbox Theatre's Big Money - TCTB Review Roundup

Sandbox Theatre opened Big Money this past weekend and a bunch of the Twin Cities Theater Bloggers were in attendance. While opinions varied on specifics, overall we liked this examination of a smart man compelled to cheat the system and the 80's game show feel (there were kudos for the lighting, music, and hairstyles.) Read our reviews in this TCTB Review Roundup! Big Money playing now through January 28, 2017. Ticket and show information can be found on both Sandbox’s website and Park Square’s.
