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

First time returning after a several year hiatus, we were pleased to see a fully renovated theater. It had gotten pretty seedy and rundown in its earlier form. The seats had been repaired and we were very comfortable. The quality of the performance reflected well on the talents of the performers and we had an enjoyable evening. Bathrooms were updated,...

Newly renovated, the Bucks County Playhouse is back up and running in New Hope! An Equity theatre, very high quality productions with big name actors and directors are being featured. Note: there is limited parking on-site. We simply walked down from our Aaron Burr House B&B Inn and didn't have to deal with the issue!

Just saw Neil Simon's "Chapter Two" at the Bucks County Playhouse. Great show, as always. It's exactly the kind of show that won't be brought back to Broadway, which primarily needs huge musical spectaculars; a revival of a smart comedy without big-name stars isn't on the agenda. That's why you need great regional theater.

Loved it all. We enjoyed a good play very well performed. The set and lighting were also excellent. The new renovated theater is wonderful, especially the deck out back overlooking the river... a wonderful place for a drink before or after the play.

Spent Academy Awards night at the playhouse watching the winners accept their Oscars. Guests were treated to walking the red carpet and being interviewed before the show began on a big screen hanging from the stage.

We saw "Chapter Two" last week at the Playhouse and it was so good. The actors fit the role so perfectly and the scenes were outstanding. It is a Neil Simon Production and directed by Marsha Mason. It is good to see a nice clean play that had meaning and this one surely does. We do recommend this one to... More

We are locals who have attended several productions at the revamped BCP and have never been disappointed. Most recently saw a matinee performance of Neil Simon's Chapter Two, directed by Marsha Mason, with a Q&A with Marsha and the cast afterwards. They have recently removed 3 rows of seats from the front, making ingress and egress more comfortable, as well... More

The Bucks County Playhouse has recently undergone extensive renovations and is under new ownership. It has quickly become the crown jewel of New Hope once again. I have seen several shows over the last year. The most recent was Joy Behar over Mother's Day weekend. All have been excellent shows. The new owners are continuing to expand and improve the... More
