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!

Steel Magnolia's they did a great job and we had a wonderful time. It just so happened that the night we went they had 'finger food' before the play and it was the first time in doing so. Ok small, nice theater (bring in big tour bus) and the show was not close to a sell out and they just... More

We took in a movie here (August: Osage County, which was great). They have a small snack bar with smaller portions and much smaller prices than the chains which was perfect for us. They also offer wine. It does not have the plush bucket seats of a big theater, but it is comfortable, clean, with very friendly staff and we... More

My husband and I had a great time seeing a first-run movie at the Playhouse (The Hobbit 2). Everyone was so friendly and helpful, the food was good and cheap, and the movie was great. I thought it was such a great idea for a playhouse to do while they're not having a play.

Went to the Brown County Playhouse for Rev. Peyton's Big Damn Band new year's eve bash. Had a great time. Nice venue, open and homey. Spirits were a little pricey but that was to be expected. Haven't seen a movie here yet but plan to soon.

Our family watched the Movie Frozen here. They had Big Woods beer on tap as well as local wine. We were very pleased with the prices and quality of the showing!
