We drove a short distance from our home to Easton to hear Monte Alexander perform and it was a very enjoyable evening for us. The Avalon feels like a well loved venue that enjoys excellent local support, which made us feel comfortable. We will be watching for programs offered there in the future. It was a nice weekend away.

We attended the Montey Alexander Jazz Festival and fell in love with the theatre. It is an intimate venue with great sightlines and acoustics. We sat in the balcony for a Saturday afternoon tribute to Dave Brubeck and could hear every note perfectly. Saturday night we were on the main floor and it was like being in a cozy jazz... More

The theater itself is rich with history, everyone from John Wayne, to jazz and folk greats (Joan Bayez etc) have played here. Its a quirky little theater lovingly restored in downtown Easton - attached to a restaurant that though we didn't eat there looked very nice indeed. Only cautions is that it is run by volunteers so a bit of... More

The theater was the hub for July's Plein Air festival for most of the week. Charming place and people.

My husband and I decided not to do a boating trip while away for our anniversary and instead decided to see "Kiss of the Spiderwoman" at the Avalon Theatre in Easton. We loved the show. The actors were phenominal. For a local group, this play was beyond excellent and was more than worth the $25 tickets. Yes, we did this... More

I went to Easton specifically to attend the Chesapeake Bay Chamber Music Festival. Various churches and the Avalon Theatre are among the concert sites. I heard two concerts at Trinity Episcopal Church and attended rehearsals at the Avalon Theatre. I loved seeing the theatre with pictures lining the walls of the lobby area and found the acoustics to be very... More

We saw Kathy Mattea and Prince Igor (a simulcast from the Met). Both were great! Kathy Mattea was apparently sold out. We should have gotten there earlier to get seats together. Some of the seats in the very rear of the balcony didn't look that great, but the acoustics were fine. It was great to see the performance at the... More

We saw Kathy Mattea with her band she was awesome. Next to the last row but all great seats only 20 rows on the ground floor. If you have the chance see a show here~ do it.

We attended the comedy show - Drink Til It's Funny and had a great time. It is a small venue and that made it all the better. Cheers!

I like being able to have a glass of wine or a nice beer while attending performances at the Avalon, whether in the main theater or the smaller Stoltz listening room.
