“Bridges of Madison County”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Most wonderful production. It's going to Broadway and it should. Saw it first on opening weekend. Had to take my 18 year old daughter to see it and the theatre has a benefactor who pays for young people 18 and under to attend any Friday night performance with an adult who buys their own ticket. That is what we did....returning for the last weekend of the performance. Got to meet the creative genuises behind this production and chat with them. It was the best!

“Always a good time in such a magnificent atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

The grounds are beautiful, even the parking area, and the new theatre is fabulous. Outside is serene and casual, yet elegant.

“Broadway Level entertainment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

With superb casts and sets, the quality of these shows rival what Broadway offers. In fact, some performances here are on their way to Broadway for their next venue. High class all the way and with affordable digs, good restaurants, and so many other activities nearby, it is a great place to be.

“Broadway in New England”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

This is not summer stock, and the local let's get together and put on a show in the barn. These are professionals, many from Broadway and Off Broadway putting on some serious theater. The theaters themselves are comfortable with good sight lines.
