This is a great venue to see lots of famous entertainers. Have been here for many shows and have never been disappointed. I recommend always getting orchestra seats. Even though the theater is small, orchestra seats provide for a real up front and close experience. The sound system is great and there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance for... More

I live really close to the Count Basie, so it is great to see a show/concert here. Dinner out first and then a show. I saw Spamalot and it was HILARIOUS! Very well done. Definitely recommend, but not upstairs, if you can avoid it!

Get tickets in the orchestra section.. close. The sound quality is lacking with back seats. They are working to rejuvenate this venue and it seems all is working well, but the acoustics are not there in the back. You will have a wonderful time and sound quality if you sit in the front orchestra. Don't miss going there while in... More

I grew up going to the old Carlton Theater. The Count Basic is an awesome venue. I've never been disappointed at ANY of the shows I've been to.

Not a big theatre, but just big enough for a local show. Saw the Moody Blues and Southside Johnny on New Years. Both put on a good show. Its an older place so seats are a bit tight. Most views are good from any seat...no real obstuctions Cash bar available.

Was there for a concert .. not an opera. We got yelled at numerous times for dancing because the old people behind us were lame and miserable. They should make a section for sitting only or tell the other people too bad.. For the amount of money that we spent on the tickets it really ruined our night...

Tiny cramped restrooms that make intermission a nightmare especially for the older folks, hate to see the old men have to climb up the steep stairs with their canes and walkers, this old Jersey Gem needs to be updated.

I love this theatre! We have gone here for a few shows over the years. I live close and go to the box office to purchase my tickets since the fees are fairly high ordering online. Never had any problems, the people who work the box office have always been very nice. Overall, a great place to see a show!... More
