“Fantastic community theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

I love the TPT. It's a great location within walking distance to historic downtown Northville. The prices are in line with most community theatre and the majority of the plays are enjoyable. If I've seen 20 plays there, I've only felt the need on three occassions to leave at intermission. But that is to be expected anywhere you go. You stil have great odds that you will see a wonderful play and I'm still more than happy with my overall experience with this theare.

I would arrive in town a few hours early and dine at a local restaurant and walk to the theatre. Watch your time and parking if you visit on the first Friday of a month as the town as their First Friday art walk.

“Great Local Theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

I enjoyed it enormously. Small theater that makes you almost feel like you are part of the play. My only regret is that I'm not in town more often. I'd catch every event there if I could.

“Theatrical integrity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

The work produced in this charming facility is first-rate. Intimate seating in a versatile space that can go from black box to proscenium in minutes. An inviting setting with front garden and lobby where in good weather patrons can await the house opening. A rotation of photos streams on the inside lobby wall. Once seated, with the house lights dimmed, you'll be treated to some of the sharpest acting you'll see in any theatre, regional or otherwise. A mix of Actors' Equity and non-union professionals who deliver with intelligence and elan. Haven't been disappointed yet. If you love live theatre, hie yourself to Tipping Point. Most recently saw The Cemetery Club (playing through June 17th.) Uniformly polished cast hit every note in this hilarious, poignant, and wise play, where comedy drapes like skin over a framework of loneliness and loss. Standing O, matinee, well deserved.

“Very intimate professional playhouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2012

Small theatre, roomy comfortable seats all with great views of the stage. Seating on three sides with small stage in the center. A good value. The acting and production are always top-notch with about 6 productions a year. As with any show, some are not appropriate for young children. Location in downtown Northville also a plus, several restaurants and bars within walking distance. Free parking.
