have been going to the Forestburgh Playhouse during the summer for a few years now. This summer we saw Damn Yankees as well as 42Street at the Playhouse. The actors were talented & put on a great show. My only complaint are the seats, which are really squishy with practically no leg room. Nice to know that the playhouse will... More

Last Friday evening (9/4/15) we enjoyed seeing Driving Miss Daisy performed at the Forestburgh Playhouse in Forestburgh, NY (approx. 95 miles northwest of NYC). The cast of 3, including Lorreta Swit of MASH fame, put on an enjoyable and entertaining performance. The new owner has made numerous improvements to the theatre and the adjoining Tavern and, we were told, plans... More

Fabulous! Our first time at the playhouse was to see Driving Miss Daisy staring Lorreta Swit and we loved it! The intimate setting was exactly what we expected. We didn't go to The Tavern afterwards but hear it's very good, perhaps next time as there will be a next time!

I recently went to the performance of Young Frankenstein at this small, intimate theatre. The actors/singers delivered an extraordinary show - a little taste of Broadway for a reasonable price! There is a restaurant on sight for drinks and snacks, and parking is a bit tight. The Forestburgh Theatre is about an hour from lower Orange County, NY.

Attending a performance at the Forestburgh Playhouse is much more than a night of engaging, professional theater. The enjoyment began on the scenic and tranquil, forest-lined drive to the theater and continued before the show began as we wandered through the well kept gardens and relaxed on the outdoor patio, drink in hand. When it was time to take our... More

We did the dinner show which was surprisingly good. Both the buffet and the Music Man exceeded our expectation. The place is beautiful and the cast were very enthusiastic.

A long weekend in Upstate NY is not complete without a visit to the Forestburgh Playhouse. Broadway performances are given in quiet beautiful surroundings. My husband and I visited the playhouse to see an amazing production of 42nd St. The cast was extremely talented and it felt as if we were actually in Manhattan, but without the noise, traffic or...

My friend and I had the pleasure of attending 42nd Street last night and let me just say I couldn't be more impressed. The professionalism and talent shown by the staff and actors was just wonderful. I have been to many Broadways show, however I love the community atmosphere provided by this theater. Right from the beginning I was greeted... More

The seating in this theater is horrible. As soon as I sat down in the narrow seat my knees were uncomfortably pressed against the seat in front of me. I immediately went to the box office to seek seating that fit adults. They were able to offer other equally small seats with no legroom or knee room. I opted for... More

Thank you so much for your constructive feedback! When I purchased the theatre last year, I certainly was aware that an overhaul of the seating was necessary. Thanks to the support of our patrons and generous donors, WE WILL HAVE BRAND NEW SEATING FOR THE 2016 SUMMER SEASON! Change takes time, and costs money. As a non-profit, we have exceeded... More
