Really lame… went with my family to see some Christmas play… I try to be open
-minded, but it absolutely sucked. It was billed as a comedy, and I don’t think I laughed once. The seats were extremely uncomfortable with no leg room. I’m 6 feet tall and my knees and back were killing me. Don’t waste your time or money… I’ve seen better theater at an elementary school.

We've frequented Theaterworks for years, returning each time with even greater expectations, never disappointed. The intimate, newly renovated theater, includes a warm gathering hall and small art gallery, a snack bar with hot and cold beverages and comfortable, amphitheater seating which offers excellent viewing from every vantage point. Recent additions allow special effects and realistic staging.

We attended "American Son" which takes place in a Florida police station where an interracial couple try to search for their missing son.
Another excellent 5 star performance. We have found Theaterworks to rival Broadway plays and performances, convenience and affordability. Check out the 2019-20 season, you will not be disappointed.

TheaterWorks has great plays and actors. The small stage is an intimate setting. An the sets are always professionally constructed. The theater has been newly renovated and should be an even better venue for the creative arts. And the staff are always helpful.

We saw "Actually" at Theaterworks (at the Wadsworth for now) on Sunday. The 90-minute play is exceptionally well acted by the two actors. It is set in a college setting and deals with difficult issues of what constitutes consent to sex, what constitutes consent when persons have too much to drink, and how race and gender come into the mix.

I've been a subscriber to TheaterWorks for many years. Mostly, the plays are excellent, with 5-star talent. Once in awhile I don't like the play but on whole, it's great theater. Professional all the way!

My wife and I have been subscribers to TheaterWorks for several years and have enjoyed most, if not all the productions. It is a very small theater in the basement of an office building on Pearl Street in Hartford. If you are claustrophobic this place my give you some concern. It is the opposite of Goodspeed but with the same issue. The exits are limited and small.
If you can get beyond that, this is excellent theater at a very reasonable cost. The productions are imaginative and varied. The current production "The Legend of Georgia McBride" is very energetic and lots of fun. They now offer reserved seating although you need to reserve seats for each play; you are not assigned a seat for the season. This is a major improvement. They have also received funding for some major renovations which will be welcome.
This is excellent theater and consistent theater. I highly recommend this theater.

Superb little theatre! We saw Raging Skillet, which was a play about a fiercely fabulous punk rock catering chef named Rossi; her life and how her relationship with her mother shaped her experiences. It was both very funny and poignant. The cast and writing were excellent and I would guess that other productions here are of similar merit. Great space and sound system. Bathrooms were a little distant from the auditorium, which might be a consideration for peeps challenged with mobility - though I didn't ask. There might be an elevator I'm not aware of.
There was also an art exhibit in the lobby. I don't live in Hartford but if I did I would probably try to see every production I could here!

Have been going to this theater for 10 years and always enjoyed their productions. The theater is small and intimate which is great to appreciate the quality of the actors which is always excellent.

Terrific historic charming theater- I attended the opening night of Mark St.Germain's excellent new play Relativity about Albert Einstein and his lost daughter- it was the perfect evening- brilliantly written, directed, performed in the most appealing theater- historic and charming - the opening night party was elegant and generous- first class as is everything about this theater. GO!
