My playgirl & I sat right up front in the "floor seating",the 1st Act was right above us but for the rest of the play we were in the front room with them. I once had a girlfriend just like Sybil & it was a lotta fun seeing her again. The laughter was contagious,everyone joined in. I'm recommending it to... More

First time attending a production of this stage company. It was a wonderful experience. Intimate theatre with seats in good view of the stage. Parking was easy to find and convenient. They sell coupons for the parking($6.50). Tickets a little difficult to order on line but calling the box office was helpful. Great seats at a reasonable price. I will... More

Went to see a Christmas Carol here. The theater is excellent. Seats are positioned well so everyone can see. Good sound system and great acoustics. Nice bar and concession area - reasonably priced for a theater. Well decorated for the holidays. The staff and volunteers are extremely friendly and accommodating. Looking forward to my next visit!

If you have the chance, run, do not walk, to see the production of Hamlet at the Hartford Stage in Hartford, Connecticut. The production showcases Shakespeare at its best. The director has chosen a young man, Zach Appelman, in the title role. His intent seems to be to bring Hamlet to light as a young man, with all the doubt,... More

This is a small, local stage with excellent productions. I recently saw ETHER DOME and HAMLET at this small theater. The acting was exceptional in both productions. While ETHER DOME was fairly long (with 2 intermissions), it was very compelling. HAMLET was absolutely outstanding. The production was riveting, and the play moved along at a quicker pace. Quite noteworthy were... More

Outstanding theater experience always at Hartford Stage. Excellent seating. Superb acting and directing. We have been going for over twenty years and have been season subscribers for the past several years. Shakespearian plays are always superb! There is a nice bar, and the restrooms are spacious and immaculate.

Not a bad seat in the house. Never disappointed. Go here often with friends and family. Professional and worth every penny. CT's own Broadway.

The Hartford Stage is a small, intimate theater that stages 1st class productions. There are almost no bad seats in the house with great sightlines throughout the venue. Parking is relatively easy and inexpensive in the garage next door and on the street . "The Queen of Connecticut," lobby is open with a 'homey' feeling. Containing a gift shop, nice... More

...then you should definitely make The Hartford Stage a stop. This is truly excellent theater in a small setting at a reasonable price. The theater's pedigree is impeccable - original productions that regularly make Broadway or off-Broadway, and more than it's share of Tony and Obie awards. And it's a venue where some of the world's finest stage talent drops... More
