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

His daughter Amanda spoke after about his work and his life and what it was like growing up in a theatrical household. It was my daughter's first experience seeing a play read in such a initimate setting,... More

For the past few years my husband and I have been season ticket holders at Gloucester stage. It is a great little theater with not a bad seat in the house. Actually in many of the seats you feel as though you are on stage. The actors are very professional and the sets are amazing. Everyone who works there is... More

The show " Crimes of the Heart" was very good. The acting and stage setting was very professional. My only problem was hearing the dialogue. I was seated to the side - the theatre is U shaped - and often the actors had their back to me. It was very hard to hear. I don't think they were miked. A... More
