In 1980 this theater was attended by our family because it was the only game in town - with banjo playing during intermission and simple happy productions. New management brought some sophistication and shows that were much more pleasant. BUT NOW? They are slick, super talented singers and dancers and serious dramatists. Their professional productions always display great enthusiasm and... More

Good acting, interesting play in a rustic theater. You have to know where you're going because it's in the middle of nowhere. They have a tavern/cabaret where things happen.

If you want to laugh until tears leak out of your eyeballs, 'Le Cage Aux Folles' at the Forestburgh Playhouse is where you want to be! Pilar and I were at the show tonight and frankly we haven't laughed that much in quite a while!!! It was just plain fun! Though all the actors and actresses did a magnificent job,... More

Just came from another great play presented by the Forestburgh Playhouse. This has been a wonderful season of presentations, so far. The playhouse is rustic and some of the seats are old but the presentations are energetic and chock full of talent. Loretta Switt was in two of the shows. This season has been musical shows and the music is... More

My friends and I attended 2 shows at FP and had a wonderful experience. Best part, it was local and easy. Had dinner and Caberet show after the matinee. Food was very good and the ensemble was fun. Starring Loretta Swit and Carolann Page. Hilarious! Great casting

The talent of these young aspiring actors at The Forestburgh Playhouse will remain in my mind for a very long time. These young adults literally are in rehearsal all day for the upcoming show and performing a different show in the evening. Every two weeks; it is a new show and always spectacular: a true sign of a successful talented... More

Took in a matinee performance of "Grease" at the Forestburgh Playhouse. A wonderful performance by a combination of professional actors and resident actors made up of recently graduated or current college theatre students. The cast brought a ton of enthusiasm to the show and captured the audience that was made of all age groups - everyone was tapping their feet... More

We were expecting mediocre performances, but were very pleasantly surprised. Cast members had terrific voices - not a lemon among them. Only downside was small parking lot. Suggest parking on the road if you can. Not to be missed.
