Saw Justin Guarini in Company last week. Although the play wasn't my cup of tea, the caliber of the acting was excellent. Also, the size of the theatre is small enough that all seats are good seats. Lovely outdoor area for drinks and light snacks on the River. I've been here several times and it is a relaxing way to... More

The Bucks County Playhouse has a long rich history in New Hope. As a matter of fact it helped form the rich art and theater history here in Bucks County. People like Grace Kelly, Robert Redford, Helen Hayes, Dick VanDyke, Liza Minnelli, Tyne Daly and many more have played inside these historic walls. If only these walls could talk! I... More

As someone who has seen over 85 plays on Broadway, I was very happy to see Bucks County Playhouse totally refurbished. I attended Bucks County Playhouse for many years and have seen some amazing plays. The theater is small and rustic and there is not a bad seat in the house. Many Broadway stars have started here so it is... More

I saw the "National Pastime" play and it was something I didn't expect from a sweet little historical town, story and actors are both brilliant! I enjoyed every second in New Hope as well as the play.

Newly renovated, the Bucks County Playhouse offers terrific Equity-Actor live theatre in New Hope again. We walked down from our Wedgwood Inn B&B, so we had no issue parking. Otherwise, give yourselves ample time to find parking in vibrant downtown New Hope, PA.

We just saw the play "National Pastime" at the Bucks County Playhouse and i want to tell you that we have seen many plays but this one was the best ever. All the actors could sing and dance as well. It was a hilarious musical which kept pour interest all the way to the end. I would recommend it to... More

A very cute theater where there are no bad seats in the house. They have started to sell drinks and some snacks in the foyer and allow these item to be brought into the show. Parking can be a problem on busy shopping days; the lot is metered. There is valet parking but not at every performance. The ticket prices... More

We were looking for something to do on the spur of the moment last night and decided to see this show, it was a great decision and we laughed for the whole 90 minutes along with the rest of the audience. The writer and actor Robert Dubac, does an excellent job of keeping the dialogue moving quickly while intertwining comedy... More
