Gotta check into their offerings. Buy your tickets earlier in the day and go in the evening to enjoy the play. The productions are very professional, entertaining and many of the actors/actresses have gone on to become famous. Just a fun place to be!

Five of us went from Bloomington to see the movie Mr. Turner on June 13th. A woman in the first row used her phone 8-10 times during the show (including the phone's flashlight). There was no caution before the show about phones. I will not be returning.

BrownCountyPlayhouse, Board Chair at Brown County Playhouse, responded to this review

The management of the Brown County Playhouse is very sorry to hear that you had such an unsatisfactory experience at the Playhouse due to the discourteousness of a member of the audience. We will insert a pre-movie slide asking audience members to turn off their phones during movies. Future movie goers can be assured that this will be done. Thank... More

The Playhouse now has movies every weekend as well as a large variety of local, live entertainment. You won't want to miss an evening at this unique theater! Check listings for what's going on this weekend.

If you are able to be in the Nashville area while "a Tuna Christmas" is playing, Go! There are only two actors, but their characters go from teenagers to old ladies and everything in between. The scene and costume changes are quick, creative and amazing! We loved everything about this show! We appreciated that foul language was minimal and the... More

Blake White and Ian McCabe played 20 fun and creative roles in this fast moving Christmas Eve drama. The dinner was very nice too!! Thanks for a great evening.

We just happened across the PlayHouse during our visit to Nashville. They had a movie matinee and our timing was perfect. The movie quality was excellent - you would not even know you were in a playhouse. It was a great addition to our day.

Went to see the play "Heroes" at the Brown County Playhouse. The play was terrific. Laughed a lot. The three gentlemen in the play were very good in their parts. The buffet before the play very good. All in all a good experience. Plan on going for another event in the future.

I was completely astounded by the quality of the dark Irish comedy, THE LONESOME WEST at Brown County Playhouse in Nashville, IN. We came expecting mediocrity and we're pleasantly surprised. Bravi to the entire company for doing this challenging script! LOVED the live incidental Irish music!
