Decently preserved old-time theater. Good acoustics, and not a bad seat in the house. Good beverage selection during concerts, including OK wine. Check out their FREE movies during the summer...I saw JAWS there and it was a packed house and lots of fun.

I have seen more shows here than I can count. Reasonable ticket prices, and the Basie is within walking distance to so many excellent restaurants. The Basie contributes to a great afternoon or evening and builds happy memories!

Went to see Jim Breuer, great place for such a cheap date night! I think the seats need to be bigger but that's just part of the history of Basie!!

I recently went to see a comedian at the venue. Its a very nice size and all the seats are great. They have a bar as well that you can purchase drinks during the show. They offer a lot of great shows for all ages. I'm really happy to have such a great venue close by.

Love having the Basie nearby. We have seen concerts, comedians, plays. The selection of shows has something for everyone at all ages. Beautiful, historical spot with great accoustics. I have taken out-of-towners here as well, and they are all impressed. Make this a part of your Red Bank visit

Went to see Sebastian Maniscalco last weekend and its a nice venue (a little tight in the seating area). Not a bad seat in the house. Wish they had some kind of screens so you can see better. Easy to get in and out of and convenient.

The theatrics Brent renovated and offers such a variety. From stars like Al Pacino to food tv stars talking, and plays and great bands and concerts. Parking is tough, so we go to Pazzo for dinner and they offer a shuttle

If you are looking for an evening of inexpensive, local entertainment look no further. Count Basie offers something for everyone in their beautiful newly renovated space in Red Bank, NJ. Excellent restaurants in walking distance nearby. Dinner and theater anyone?
