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.

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

We went to Count Basie theatre for Pink Martini concert. This is a nice, intimate theater for performances. Most seats have good views of the stage. The concert was great and the audience lively. We had no problem finding parking on the street. We saw a lot of good restaurants around this place, but we had eaten and did not... More

Nicely restored and a nice area with shops and restaurants for after show. Although our last concert we sat front row in the center balcony which was great to see the sound was not the best we have heard in theaters. we are big concert goers. But we do return here for and will continue to.
