Friends and I attended the final night of a 7-day run of this show at Gorton Theatre. It was my first time visiting this sweet little theater in the heart of downtown Gloucester. The lobby is modern and spacious and I liked that they offered water and cookies for purchase on an honor system and "pay what you can." The... More

The Gloucester Stage has been around for 35+ years. and it consistently delivers high-quality, thought-provoking plays at very reasonable prices. The theater is small and set up in a semi-circle format with about 7 rows so you are close to the state. As with everything in Gloucester, the theater is close to the harbor (East Gloucester) and there are a... More

I've been to the Gloucester Stage Company several times over the years and it never fails to bring something interesting to the stage. Their production of "4000 Miles" had an excellent female lead but a less experienced juvenile lead. It was early in the performances and they were working out the kinks. However, the play was an Obie Winner and... More

My husband and I arrived in Gloucester for our four day stay on a rainy Sunday. Since beach/boating were out of the question we searched theater options and were lucky enough to see the final performance of 'Auld Ang Syne'. A terrific production! This is a small, intimate theater and there are no bad seats in the house. We will... More

My wife and I enjoy an Sunday afternoon performance of Jacques Brel is alive and well and living in Paris. This performance took some of the wonderful songs by Jacques Brel and treated the full house to 2 hours of pure delight. The venue is intimate and there is not a bad seat in the house. The company stayed after... More

Theatre has been around a long time and is a great way to be entertained on a warm summer evening. Acting is always excellent.

We saw two plays this summer, driving up to Gloucester from the western suburbs. The first was the memorable North Shore Fish, a vibrant play about the fishing industry and its people. The actors were terrific portraying the factory workers in the decaying industry, and they were funny, strong and resiliant. The second was the beautiful rendition of Driving Miss... More

We enjoyed the show - "This is Our Youth." The acting and the set was good, but the play was a downer. The building is a little rundown and parking is very limited.

We had a wonderful time over the week-end, taking in "North Shore Fish" at the Gloucester Stage. The theater space is compact, but with a story and characters taken right out of Gloucester itself, the play couldn't miss. Parents should know that the production is "R-rated" for language, but the story is funny and poignant, and the acting very good.... More
