I saw Heart here this past weekend, and have been here in the past for Joe Jackson and Steven Lynch. This venue has terrific acoustics, seats are not the roomiest in the world, but are OK for a big guy like me, and there are two bars - one inside, one outside, where the drinks are flowing and the lines...

Nice refurbsihing of a historic theatre. The acoustics are pretty good. The security staff does nothiong to ask patrons to sit down in their chairs. If your not a member of the Count Basie,you will never get good seats or any at all.

Great venue for shows and so convenient to go to. Enjoyed a free showing of the Beatles A Hard Days Night! A real community place with some very fine big name acts.

The old time theater is beautifully preserved with comfortable seating and gorgeous design. My six friends and I enjoyed ourselves enormously at the performance of Menopause The Musical. We laughed throughout the show and danced with the performers on the stage at the end. A great time was had by all.

This is a great venue, with small intimate charm. We saw a comedy show here, and such an arena was perfect. In the lower section, you still could feel as if this was a comedy club. The small theater was booming with laughter. We would definitely return

This is a great venue - no bad seats. The location and parking make it easy to attend. The performance was a solid 3 hours, and lots of fun.

We have attended NJ Symphony Orchestra concerts at Count Basie. It has taken quite awhile, but the restoration and redecoration have been nicely completed. The acoustics which were never great, have also improved.

The theatere is nice but they need to fix the floors. Also, they shouldn't allow eating and drinking in the theater seting area. Let customers eat or drink at the lounge areas. Letting them have their food and drink in the seats lets them leave garbage when they leave, and spilled drinks which just dry up and have an odor,... More

The venue is on the smaller side. However, I think there isn't a bad seat in the house. Everyone was up dancing and enjoying themselves for the show. There is a great outdoor area/bar to hang out at before the show. I think it is a super place to see a show. It is also close to many of Red... More

Love the small-town atmosphere of Red Bank and I loved the John legend show, but sitting int he balcony seats is incredible torture for all but the smallest people.
