Great little theater!

We have a subscription and have enjoyed most of the plays we've seen. It's intimate and the staff is friendly and helpful.

Continue to be season ticket holders and the shows just keep getting better. Parking for subscribers is free in the back lot unless there is a civic center event. Then it is a reduced rate. Small, intimate theater where you are close no matter where your seat is located. As always, looking forward to the next show.

From the first phone call to reserve tickets until saying goodbye after the show, the "host" was gracious and helpful, almost as though I was visiting his home. I'd never been to TheaterWorks and was delighted! The play (Buyer and Cellar) was awesome and very professional, our seats were pretty good - but again our host suggested we move to... More

I great small theater with a variety of plays in a season. I like that they now allow you to reserve your seat when you call in and the flexibility as to when you want to see a show.

Fabulous theater in the basement where no one has a bad seat. Every seat is close to the stage, so no binoculars are necessary. The plays are always fresh, exciting and unique. New works and first runs, terrific actors and interesting plays.

I have attended several plays at TheaterWorks. It is an interesting theatre. It is almost a theatre in the round, but not quite. When you enter at street level you walk downstairs to get to the theatre. I have enjoyed all of the plays that I have seen at TheatreWorks and they bring in some very good shows and talent.

i have been a subscriber for at least seven years. I Have never been disappointed. We do pay extra for Reserved seats, but to us it is worth it. Yearly subscribers get a parking pass, too. It is very unique, and all the plays seem to have a theater works added twist.

A little known theater in Hartford. Very intimate seating, not a bad seat in the house, lots of variety.

I saw a play called "Good People" here in June 2015. This was a wonderful play, with really strong performances by the cast. I had never been here before. Thankfully someone in our group HAD been here before and was aware of the seating situation. The good seats in the middle are all reserved, but the seats on the side... More
