“THE best off Broadway shows!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

As good as (and better than some) any theater on Broadway. (A perfect example is Newsies.) They have five main shows every year, and children's show in between.

“Modern Millie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Awesome theater. Actors/Actresses rival their NY Brethren. Newsies started here and is on Broadway. Damn Yankees was EXCELLENT. Modern Millie was also very good.

It is important that NJ support the arts and you do that by paying for tickets.

“The Little Mermaid”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

This show was amazing! It was better than some of the Broadway performances I have seen. The actors were great, set design beautiful and the costumes were gorgeous. This is a must see! The Paper Mill Playhouse is simply lovely. It is a small theater, there is dining in the Carriage House (Pre-fix meal), and there are snacks and beverages(alcohol is offered too) available inside the theater and out. There are also many fine restaurants to eat in the area. Theater parking is $8.00. It is just all around lovely experience and The Little Mermaid was a spectacular show!

“Broadway without the bother”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

If you like legitimate theater you will love the Paper Mill. It is located in a very nice town with several fine restaurants, a number of which are within walking distance of the theater. The theater itself is beautiful in a park like setting with ample parking in adjacent lots. The tickets are very reasonably priced and the seats comfortable. The shows are mostly musical revivals though I have seen a few that were staged here before moving to New York. The productions are always first rate often with a headline star. This is a thoroughly professional house and all productions are beautifully staged. You can have a great night out, see a great show, and spend half what a similar outing to Broadway costs. If you can I recommend becoming a subscriber. We have had one for years and besides having the same seats for each play you have the ability to switch dates if it becomes necessary. You also get discount coupons in case you want to purchase additional tickets.

Wonderful theatre with ample parking and a real break from traveling to NYC. Productions are of Broadway caliber and scenery is outstanding with a wonderful staff who answer all your needs. Enjoy!
