It's a shoebox of a theater with a very low stage and an audience on 3 sides. Maybe 120 seats? Performers enter and exit often through the audience and can be standing right next to you singing loud and clear as they were in the...More

The musical was delightful as well as the theater. Loved the costumes, very bright and authentic. The open seating for non subscribers was nice as well. There wasn't a bad seat in the place. All of the actors did a great job. Definitely going back...More

First off, I'm a Music Director who works with professional theaters and equity actors, so I see everything through that lens. The best thing about the show I saw ("Sondheim on Sondheim") was the Music Director. He played the entire, very complicated score from memory,...More

We just saw the musical Sweeney Todd at Porchlight. It never fails to amaze us how they can do so much in such an intimate space. We particularly love seeing any performances at Porchlight because there isn't really a bad seat in the house! It's...More
