Best theater on the Connecticut Coastline in a nice small town with shops and restaurants. The theater is small which makes the experience unique with comfortable seats.

Great small venue to be up and close to the show - not a bad seat in the house! You can order wine etc before the show and during - nice evening out while supporting a great venue. People are friendly and helpful.

This is such a lovely theater and I wish I had more time to attend functions there. The classic movie showings, the simulcast of the Met, and live stage as well as musicians. I'm not a follower of popular groups, singers, etc. I did go see Michael Buble at Mohegan Sun Casino in CT and hated the venue. It's too... More

Having attended this venue on multiple occasions, I find it to be small and intimate when seeing a show. From Ed Asner in a one man show on FDR, or a tribute to John Lennon to children's theatre Cinderella we have no complaints. It's worth the trip to see something at The Kate!

Great venue to see a show. Yo can get pretty up close and intimate. Good parking, good restaurants/bars nearby to walk to before or after show. Can clear seats in front for dance floor. Serve wine in intermission. Very clean and aesthetically pleasing, though simple - but tasteful.

Great theatre with an ever interesting line up of shows. The staff are very friendly and the space is small so every seat is a good one! If you're in town check out one of their shows. You wont be disappointed.

This is lovely space in a converted building on Main Street. There is a great display of Kate memorabilia in the lobby because she summered nearby. Friendly staff. A triumph of small theatre/live music.

They do it all - comedy, music, and drams from the famous to the relatively unknown, punctuated by screenings of Katherine Hepburn films. Go on line to check out the schedule - there is something for everyone.
