If you haven't been to Crossville, TN and experienced a play at the Cumberland County Playhouse. You are missing a real treat. Just saw Damn Yankees and was blown away.

We saw "Inherit The Wind", a wonderful performance, opening night, good seats. A large cast, music was excellent. Plenty of parking, all that work at the playhouse are very professional.

A great find and show! We went to see SHREK with my wife and three children, 3, 7, and 15. Everyone had a great time! My kids said it was one of the highlights of our week trip to Fairfield Glade.

We saw "Damn Yankees" and it was well done and amusing. It was a fun casual evening of theater. It was an easy drive back to the Garden Inn in Monterey after the show.

Price was right and we had great seats. Maybe a little too close but very good location. Easy to find and easy to get out.

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.
