This historic playhouse has the ambiance that goes with it. Nice performances well done. Located in New Hope it is part of the historic arts and crafts movement there.

The playhouse has had a few tough years but now seems to be back on track and the shows have been well done. You can get quality entertainment without having to visit New York. Over the years we have seen top notch actors and well directed plays. The theatre is in great condition and the sets have brought the atmosphere... More

Honestly, I don't like plays. I went to New Hope to the Bucks County Playhouse to see beauty and the beast. We bought the tickets a few months ago, because we knew it was going to be a full house. And it was. The theatre was in really good shape. And also for kids who cant see behind a person... More

We have attended two plays at the Playhouse. Both shows were excellent with top name performers. It's an intimate setting and beautifully maintained venue. Will definitely attend other performances.

The Bucks County Playhouse recently reopened after closing for renovation. It is a nice way to spend an evening; the theatre itself is nicely done, with lovely outdoor space in which to sit and wait. We saw Marilu Henner in a recent production, which we thoroughly enjoyed. It's nice to be able to see an actress of note in an... More

It has been some time since our last visit to the Playhouse. The play was a great comedy (Vanya, Sonia, Masha and Spike) and the cast did a remarkable and spirited job of performing! It was not Broadway but I never expected it to be. We were up close and not sure if the seats were going to be good... More

The restoration/renovation that has been done is wonderful! And the addition of the deck/cafe that overlooks the river is a very nice addition.

My wife and I visited the BCPlayhouse last night to see the play Vanya, Sonia, Masha and Spike. First time back to the playhouse since the renovations. Nice location with an improved exterior setting, along the Delaware river in New Hope. The theatre interior was upgraded as well, but it's still a snug fit with the small tight seats. About... More

We went to Sonia and Vanya and Masha and Spike. This is a Tony award winning comedy written by Christopher Durang. I guess it is the conceit of the playwright to think he can star in his own play. However, he kept forgetting his lines and needed the prompting from an offstage assistant. Really? It was very "community college" and... More

I have not been INSIDE this playhouse, however, the view from the outside is BEAUTIFUL. I am putting a review up for that reason alone. You have the beautiful stone bridge overlooking the damn and the water below with all the adorable ducks. The playhouse itself makes great photographs! Myself and my husband have spent much time daydreaming in this... More
