Always a pleasure to see a show at the Playhouse. Jason Ross never ceases to impress. Well worth a trip!

An excellent play, fast moving, all the actors were so versatile. Well acted, they sang, interchange and played different musical instruments, and very funny too. Character acting by Patty Payne - Bravo! Make sure you choose seats directly facing the stage. Ushers were very good.

This is a real gem of a theater - talented performers - great plays. This time we saw "Damn Yankees" but have also attended "Les Miserables" in the past. We try to attend a performance here whenever we are in the area. Prices are reasonable for this quality of entertainment.

Words can not describe how beautiful this play house is. This truly the gem of the city we were staying in. I think I cried about 5 times in this play, and I will definitely return here just for this play house.

This is an attractive older playhouse that has some excellent productions. We saw Gypsy and the talent was great. We got in quickly and had comfortable seating. There was a local singing group singing in the lobby while we waited.

We attended "Gypsy" and "It is all about the blues". Both were excellent productions. "Gypsy" was three hours long which surprised us. Since we were staying in Crossville it was no problem for us but several people left at intermission.

Comfortable seats. Huge cast and kept kids attention whole show. Was rated PG but was fine for our grandchildren. It was a late nite but they stayed awake so you know it was good

What a wonderful place to go and enjoy great talent and not have to big in a big city. I have saw a half of dozen plays there from wizard of oz to smoke on the mountain, great seating anywhere there and reasonable prices . . . Next time you are in Crossville Tennessee check it out.

We enjoyed the performance but weren't really wowed. The play moved a little slowly in places. I expected more of a story line than just music. The musicians were good, and the comedy was enjoyable, especially the preacher!

Great shows! Who would think that such a small town would have such an amazing playhouse? Every production I've seen has been outstanding. The playhouse itself is in a beautiful setting and the shows are always very entertaining.
