My husband and I went to see a comedian, loved this place. It was our first time here, would definitely go back again. It is located in the Red Bank area, and there is a lot of shops and restaurants within walking distance. It is not a large venue, but it is really nice. They had a nice outdoor area... More

I gave the beautiful Count Basie Theatre 4 out of 5 stars for the sound quality that is often spotty for this venue. I can't say whether it is the fault of the architecture or the sound techs which do change from artist to artist. I'm just reporting my experience which spans stand-up comedians to concerts, musicals and plays. With... More

I've been to this theater a number of times over the years and I'm never disappointed. The seats are comfy and you don't feel crammed into them like you do in some of the NY Broadway theaters. They could use some more leg room but overall, they aren't bad. The acoustics are great and the stage is large enough to... More

Saw Norah Jones , what a great show , nice easy dinner at The Dublin House, coffee at Rooks, new place , Red Bank is a fun town and that theatre is very cool , tight seating but I'm not tall. I was in the Balcony and could see and hear with ease.

They can put on a great show! They had plenty of bar and bathroom available for everyone. The longest line was for the t-shirt table. However we spent some time in the hallway since I didnt feel well and the TVs kept cutting in and out so it was difficult to watch the show.

I have been to Count Basie Theater a number of times in my life to see everything from shows to concerts, and I always have a great time. Relatively inexpensive, the venue is extremely versatile and can accommodate a variety of performances. The theater is two floors (with more steps in the balcony), and has a bar on each floor...

We love this quaint theater. You can choose entertainment of most any kind you prefer. Sadly, as we are seniors, we have always loved the performers that have been around for awhile, particularly for the blues. Our favorite was BB King, who has recently passed, and he will always have a place in our hearts. Young or old, you can... More

It is wonderful to have a theater like Count Basie in central New Jersey. I recently discovered that they support the arts in many ways with outreach programs for young musicians. As a concert and performance venue, they offer something for everyone. A word of caution, avoid the loge seating, which is really tight with no leg room.

Theater underwent a total rehab a few years ago. Varied programming, with many top acts. Although it is a large space it still feels intimate. Only drawbacks are, it is a relatively small stage and inadequate restrooms.
