The theater was gorgeous! There wasn't a bad seat in the house! Snacks and drinks are offered. My only tip would be to not dress too warmly.... My husband and I were wishing we had worn short sleeves... Also, the seats are really close together - very little leg room. All in all, we loved it, and would definitely go... More

First time at this theatre. Very nice arrangements with very good seats to see the stage. Not huge - just the right size

I have been to this venue a number of times and am always pleased! I love the intimate atmosphere and charming appearance. You can easily see the stage from any location in the venue. I always check to see what will be playing here as it is easily my favorite hall in the area.

Saw SSJ here for the 2nd time. Always great! The theater is well run and efficient at handling the crowds. SSJ always puts on a great show & they did not disappoint us on NYE.

We saw Peppa Pig and my grandkids loved it. Just the prices were crazy expensive. It's very convenient and kid friendly and great to take kids.

Have been to the Country Basie many times to see many different types of concerts. The theater has been beautifully restored and the various shows they have can please all.ages and tastes. A plus is there are so many wonderful restaurants to enjoy a meal either before or after the show. All.in all always has been a wonderful time.

This is a nicely restored, older theater that offers good shows for family. The theater itself is well done, and the audience can see the stage from all seats. Food and drinks are offered for sale throughout performances and you can eat and drink in the theater. We spent a nice afternoon in Red Bank, with the Nutcracker ballet being... More

I love the artists, and the venue. However, they tend to attract a lot of drunks, and continue overserving alcohol, during the entire show. I've had many concerts spoiled by beer and wine being spilled on me, by guests behind me. People just don't have common courtesy anymore, talking through shows, hold up their phones to video sows, blocking other's... More

We have seen many shows at Count Basie and have never been disappointed. The theater itself has been beautifully restored. Prices are fair and there are a lot of good restaurants in the area for dining before or after the show.
