Extra special venue - charming theater with amazing acoustics!!! The shows are unique and you almost feel as though you are on stage. The front row balcony seating is a favorite.

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. You can take your drinks into the theater and enjoy the show. The volunteer staff are friendly and the shows include musicians, simulcast from the MET and of course Katherine's movies. Don't miss...

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.
