We've been attending shows at the Basie for years and always enjoyed this beautiful theater. They did a fabulous job in the restoration and I still stare at the ceiling every time we go in. Quality acts in a venue that seats about 1500 so not a bad seat in the house. The addition of the patio in the side... More

Community theatre that is well kept, has great variety of shows, fair prices, and nice home town location. Parking was adequate and this newly renovated theatre was a real treat. Would love to return soon.

Count Basie Theater in Red Bank, NJ is a gem. I have been attending their series of four plays a year as a subscription member. They are entertaining and well-produced. We have many talented people in our area who perform in these productions. Very worthwhile experience.

Went to the Count Basie Theatre to see a performance of Jesus Christ Superstar put on by Phoenix Productions. The performance was very enjoyable and a great experience. Prior to going and knowing that the Count Basie Theater is a very old landmark I wasn't sure what to expect of the venue. I had never been there before. The place... More

I love the Count Basie Theater. It's a beautifully redone old theater. They have great shows. There are plenty of really great restaurants within walking distance. If I have one criticism it's the lines for the restrooms at intermission time. They are long.

It is great to have.the opportunity to experience some good to excellent music in nearby Red Bank. Over the years, I have been lucky enough to see performers ranging from Diana Ross to Preservation Hall musicians from New Orleans to Hall and Oates at this renovated theatre. It has been refurbished so that one can appreciate the beautiful theatre it... More

I purchased tickets for a concert being held at the Count Basie Theatre. While the venue was very nicely done some of the seats need some work. Specifically as you ascend the stairs to the more moderately priced seat, you would think you are in a totally different place. The seats were quite close to each other and there was... More
