A true winner. Shows are top Broadway quality, often with Broadway stars. The staff are top rate, professional, very friendly and extremely accomodating. The theater is small, intimate, with no bad seats. The venue is a gorgeous setting. Definitely leave time for a glass of...More

The Bucks County playhouse is a great example of people who do everything right. The theater is recently renovated. It’s got good climate control. The seats are comfortable. However, it’s the performances the keep bringing you back! We sat Guys and Dolls recently. What a...More

Excellent presentation of Broadway play. Miss Adeline stole the show by far and leads were all very good. We've seen other shows here and they do not disappoint!!

Regional theater as good as it gets: First-rate talent overflowing with personality & energy & only six instruments filled the rustic historic ambiance with classic Broadway melodies. More than fifty-plus years later & delightful Guys & Dolls has never been better!

On the other hand, there are not enough seats in the bathroom causing delays getting back from intermission and some frustration on the part of patrons. However, this problem will be resolved when the Playhouse expansion and renovations are completed in 2018. As mentioned by...More

The Bucks CountyPlayhouse was good. Nice tables and Bar to wait outside before the show. The seats were real close and all the same level. A little narrow for sitting. The Performance of GUYS AND DOLLS was EXCELLENT. I would recommend this to a friend...More

Just saw a crowd-pleasing, full audience performance of Guys and Dolls. The stage came alive with so much talent packed into one small theater - especially the stellar performances of Steve Rosen (in the role of Nathan Detroit) & Lesli Margherita (as Miss Adelaide). This...More

Very well run live theatre. Set in beautiful New Hope PA the theatre is in a very picturesque part of town. The show started on time and anywhere you sit you have a good view of the stage. Parking is a little pricey, but you...More

Last night's performance of The Nerd was the absolute worst play we have ever seen (and we have seen many!). HORRIBLE dialogue; childish acting, not ONE laugh, silly, bathroom humor. We left after the first act. Particularly galling is that we paid $75 per ticket...More

Definitely, I brought my 6 year old son and he loved it. Some of the humor went over his head but he still enjoyed it. There were other kids in the audience as well.

Any seat in the Playhouse is a great seat. (Personally I don't like to sit in the first three or four rows of any theater.) It's a small cozy venue. We recently saw Clue and sat in the middle of the last row. It was a full... More
