Great little theatre

First visit to Bucks County Playhouse. Small venue, so there is not a bad seat in the house. Nice setting on the Delaware river, with a patio overlooking the water.

A comfortable old playhouse with a lovely deck over the river for intermission. Terrific regional theater boosted by actors we've all heard of. We go to small theaters all the time and this is one of the best. Saw two great plays this past year and going again for 'It's a Wonderful Life' around the holidays.

Small old style summer stock playhouse on the river. Good site lines and production values make for a first class experience. Lovely out door area for drinks before the show and a great balaconay over looking the river for intermission. Parking is tight you might want to park in one of the bigger town lots and walk to the playhouse

Intimate, well managed historical playhouse with an amazing history of famous actors/actresses. 400+ seats and not a bad one. Wonderfully helpful staff who clearly enjoy their jobs. Another must visit when in the area.

We were here for Labor Day weekend. We spent 3 nights in a local hotel, and we drove around and just experienced the area. It was a fun weekend, and we were very pleasantly surprised to find this gem. The Bucks Co Playhouse has some really cool history to it. Lots of actors and entertainers we know today got their...

Bucks County Playhouse, located on the site of a former grist mill on the banks of the Delaware River, has enjoyed a long history featuring top-quality Broadway talents & plays in a beautiful setting. Summer haven, Broadway talents such as Robert Redford, Dick Van Dyke, Alan Alda, Grace Kelly & many, many more performed on its stage. Sadly, for a... More

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
