Dinner Still Served with Circle Theater

There’s so little left of our once-flourishing dinner theater scene that it’s tempting to mention the menu — meat loaf, garlic/parmesan chicken breast or ravioli in white sauce with broccoli florets — before reminding you that Doug Marr is still directing delightful entertainment at his Circle Theatre.
