I stopped by the playhouse box office since I was concerned about the accessibility for my elderly parents. The office staff was wonderful and offered to open up the theater so I could see the possible setting arrangements. We were pleased with the choice and had front side seats that offered an intimate view of the pit percussionist. The musical... More

We enjoy the plays either musical or comedy. The seats are all great for seeing the stage . The a/c is new and working well.

On Monday evening, July 21, 2014 we saw a wonderful show, Perfect Wedding; this show is an English romantic farce comedy. The show flowed with a laugh after laugh. This was our first time in the Cape Cod Playhouse in Dennis on Cape Cod. We loved the atmosphere and how nice the people were. Definitely will go back. Love Cary... More

We made reservations well in advance over the internet which I recommend. the acting and singing was very good. The play house looks like a big barn inside. The seats were OK but not very comfortable

The Cape Playhouse, the oldest summer theatre, has professional productions in a very small, intimate theatre. Yes, one realizes people were smaller years ago ... The seats and spacing is tight. I am not a big person, but I was squashed. But the productions are usually very well produced, and the sets are well done. The theatre hires professional actors... More

We had a great experience at the playhouse recently. Be advised that the balcony seats are kind of far from the stage and the balcony is on a steep incline. Other than that, professional staging, great acting, and well done performances!

A nice venue for some very good productions during the summer season, the Cape Playhouse has maintained its tradition of providing enticing entertainment. Set in a renovated barn, the plays are excellent with fine acting on professionally designed staging. "Freud's Last Session" (an off-Broadway production) was exceptional with a masterful handling of a two-man script that highights their major differences... More

Great regional theater with a very polished production. We really enjoyed their "Odd Couple". The theater building is a rustic gem that attracts a friendly crowd. Enjoy a glass of wine outside during intermission.

We thoroughly enjoyed 'The Odd Couple' here recently. A lovely atmosphere here, on a warm summer evening. Tickets a little expensive, but we had excellent seats in the second row, with a great view. Didn't need our cushions as the bench seats were padded and perfectly comfortable. Would definitely recommend a visit, if something in their program takes your fancy!

Terrific show.....Cape Playhouse always puts on quality productions ! Highly recommend ! Look for one of the stars to be playing Ralph Cramden on Broadway in 2015.....he will be perfect for the part !
