This theatre has not disappointed us every time we have gone. The Garfield show was terrific and it is only a little over an hour long. It is fun, especially for kids and keeps them entertained the entire time. But I find myself enjoying the...More

We've seen multiple shows at the theatre, and the ones we have seen have been fantastic. The Christmas shows are always good. The shows for younger kids are always interactive and fun.

Black box theatre in the middle of Crown Center. We saw Nine Who Dared, which is a play about school desegregation in the 1950's. Very well presented and thought provoking. Wonderful performances with an opportunity for audience participation, but no one is drawn into the...More

Most Coterie productions are aimed at young children, but Madagascar is lively family entertainment for about the same price as a movie. Crown Center garage parking...More

I thought the Coterie Theatre mounted plays aimed only at children and for that reason never went to a production. But in February one of its productions, And Justice for Some:The Freedom Trial of Anthony Burns [1858], caught my attention and I decided to go...More

We just went last night and saw 'Where the Wild Things Are.' This was our first time and I was surprised at how small the theater was. In actuality, it was the perfect size, because it made the performance more intimate. This show (maybe others...More
