Really stunning venue for a small theater. There is seating around back right along the river which is beautiful. Getting drinks here is wonderful. The New Hope waterfall is right next to the playhouse and there is some seating outside nearby so you can grab a drink and take in the waterfall. The theater is small so all the seats... More

We made a trip to the area for my husband's birthday recently and saw The Rat Pack. This show saw the front of the theater filled with a club like setting.

Since the Bucks County Play house has been renovated it has become a great place to see a play. We have season tickets and every play has been done extremely well. We are looking for to the last play in our series of tickets in December and have already renewed for next year.

We went to go and see 'The 25th Annual Putnam County Spellng Bee' in September. What a very sweet venue. Intermission is spent outside on a veranda overlooking the river. The seats are very comfortable and the staff is very, very welcoming. The quality of the production was undeniably top shelf! Can't wait to go back again very soon.

We go to Rocky Horror every year for a long time. Bucks County Playhouse is the best place to go for this cult classic (having tried other areas like Brooklyn). We choose to go at midnight...The people are genuine and not afraid to be who they are...in all there glory - the energy is fantastic.

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.

Thank bruce b
