See a show — any show! Great theater with excellent views from every seat. We've seen a Christmas special, solo performers, musicals and recently "Clue", which was the funniest play we've seen in a decade. Charming (albeit small) lobby is compensated by an outdoor patio in the front and a seasonally open deck on the Delaware River in the back.... More

Took my teenage girls to see Clue. Had a great time. No bad seat and the acting was superb. Great place to see a show with your family. The ticket prices are reasonable and New Hope is a nice town to walk around before or after the show.

Every production we have seen here has been outstanding. There is not a bad seat in the house. We love the new deck which overlooks the river. It's a nice new addition.

Saw a fantastic version of clue here. I like it because it really does seem like it's hard to get a bad seat. Nice theater layout and big open staging.

Love this theatre and have seen many wonderful musicals, comedy nights, plays, etc. Just recently saw Triple Espresso, a vaudeville show, with 3 guys who are hilarious! Definitely worth seeing and if you miss this one, check out their upcoming shows. This historic theatre has a outdoor deck bar overlooking the Delaware, sometimes with live music. A great place to...

An historic theatre in New Hope, PA (Bucks County). Recently renovated, but with the same look and feel of days gone by. Some amazing TV and Stage stars have graced this very stage. Today it offers excellent performances by those well-known performers and up and coming stars.
