“Absolutely Wonderful Theater- every show will change you in a positive way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

With the artistic director, Darko, The Hartford Stage has been renewed! Every show he selects will take you on an experience that will entertain, educate and bring you into the world of the characters portrayed. It does not matter if you have heard of the show previously- take the big step and trusting Darko's insight, see a show new to you, new to your friends. If you have knowledge of the show, be ready for a new experience: feel the heat, pain, joys, challenges, contemplations, exhilirations, conflicts, and perhaps love from your seat- which is never far from the action. The price is right. I have met subscribers who travel 2 hours to reach this theater, and weather will not deter them. The actors are cast from many, many locations. If you enjoy true theater and not just the movies, Hartford Stage is a destination deemed highly worthy! I attend with adult friends and more mature teenagers.

“Terrific!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Hartford Stage presents an eclectic season of plays and musicals. The production values for this company are very high: staging, lighting, costumes, music, and performances have been consistently excellent. Because the layout is a thrust theater, there are virtually no bad seats in the house. I would recommend Hartford Stage to anyone interested in the performing arts.

“Great theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

You may not like every play, but they are all well done. Imaginative staging, interesting sets and wonderful costuming. The current artistic director is very good and his productions are outstanding. Small enough for a good view from every seat. Great regional theater.

“A christmas carol is well done with special effects.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Each performance there leaves me riveted; my attention grabbed. The stage is so close; they are all good seats there. Excellent acting.
