There is a wide range of entertainment . . . drama, comedy, period plays and always something special for the children at Christmas. There are special appliances for those with hearing issues, is an indication of how well the patrons needs are considered. I find the staff... More

The Two River Theater offers great plays in a lovely atmosphere. Most recently we saw an August Wilson play that was sensational. The theater gets terrific actors and does a nice job on the stage design. Bravo!

We have been subscribers to the Two River Theater Company for many years. It has consistently delivered quality theater in a great setting. Last night we saw August Wilson's "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom". It was extraordinary, from the set to the performances to the lighting. A treasure.

Thank you to this creative not for profit organization for its artistic integrity, willingness to address important social issues without pandering or bombast. Productions can be, at the same time, innovative, and still pay homage to classics. The productions are professional and always quite good, and sometimes superative.

I have seasons tickets to this live theater and have had for several year and find it an exceptional value and experience. Each show is unique and the actors are very talented -- being close to NYC means that some great talent is available for each show. Last week the graduate theater program students at NYU presented some of the... More

How fortunate we are to have this wonderful small theater in our community. It is the venue for some wonderful performances and is efficiently run and well thought out as a physical facility. From off Broadway productions, to new material to seasonal presentations, Two River Theater is a tremendous addition to the local art and artistic scene.

We don't subscribe or go that often, but every time has been memorable. Often top grade actors and productions, occasionally a world premier. Truly not a bad seat in the house. Comfortable and good acoustics.

Last Friday night I went to see a play entitled “I Remember Mamma”. It was about the life of a Swedish family portrayed by an all female group of thespians that obviously had been banished from the real theater. Perhaps there is an organization like Alcoholics Anonymous for bad actresses. Well they performed here Friday at the Two River theater.... More

Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent experience at Two River Theater. We are always grateful to hear from our patrons—and appreciate you taking the time to write in with your concerns.

Not a bad seat in this theater. They do newer plays and do them very well. We don't have a subscription but thinking about it!
