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!

Very perplexed about this review, the good, the actors are truly amazing. Not the comedy that I was expecting but great acting none the less. This venue is decent, it needs a little updating but it works. Ok, now, the not so good. We went on Friday night to get tickets and we're told that the price for the play... More

We went to see a comedy and had a wonderful time. There don't seem to be any bad seats. We sat in the middle, as seating isn't assigned. We ordered tickets in advance, on line, then picked them up at will call. We were there when they opened the doors so we could sit anywhere we wanted. There is an... More

My family and I recently attended The Lonesome West showing at the Brown County Playhouse, I am giving this a poor rating based on the "PG" rating that was advertised. This play easily could have been rated R for the use of vulgar language. My family of four paid $78 for four tickets and we were dissatisfied with the show... More

Dear Famiyfriendly12, We have now changed the wording regarding the language to Adult Language throughout. We agree that "some adult language" was not sufficient to convey the reality. We apologize for putting you in the difficult position of having your children present at this play without proper warning. Thanks to your review, we will be watching this more closely. Happy...

We had come to Nashville in celebration of my wife's birthday. The highlight of our first day there was the Brown County Playhouse. I had purchase tickets a while back for that night's production: “Whole lotta shakin’ a Piano Pumpin’ Rock n’ Roll Revue”. This was a nearly non-stop, almost two hour long, high-energy, performance by five very talented musicians... More

The group played 50's music. Very good band. Love the Brown County Playhouse, Nashville is trying to keep it going since IU pulled out. This show was free!

We are delighted you enjoyed the performance. Seems many in our audience agree. You were lucky enough to happen in on our Merchant's Night, a free dress rehearsal night that is open to the community. The price for this show is $22 for adults and $19 for seniors, veterans, or students. The show is selling well so call ahead for... More

Loved the playhouse or theater. It's very small, so go visit it early in the day to see what is playing and get your tickets and then you can relax knowing you have a seat.

We spent just one night in Nashville as a little getaway and found this little theater very charming. We watched the Fault in Our Stars as a first run movie for only $5 per ticket. Love that there is a quality non- profit theater available in this great little town!
