It's nice that this small theater has been saved from the wrecking ball. A pretty theater with good sight lines and acoustics. However, tight, cramped seats: if you're a big person you'll likely be uncomfortable.

Been there several times through out the years. We've been to for plays as well as concerts. Right downtown accessible by public transportation.A.block away from Yale university, good restaurants and shopping. I live close by.

If you can't get to Broadway or can't afford it, come see the shows in New Haven at the Shubert. For the most part this is a good theater, the seating and sightlines are good, and the acoustics are as good as any other theater. Mezzanine is a great value. Stay out of the Balcony though unless you have front... More

The Shubert Theater is a wonderful old theater right in downtown New Haven. It's gorgeous without being overwhelmingly huge. We were seated in the mezzanine, and we had a perfect view of the stage. We took a walk up to the balcony at intermission, and it was a little steep up there - you probably wouldn't like the balcony if... More

My friend and I were visiting the area whilst I was in the USA and, being a theatrical sort, on seeing that there was a backstage tour happening at the Shubert Theatre it was a no-brainer that we attend. What an absolutely glorious theatre! Our guide was knowledgeable and had plenty to say on the theatre, and took every question... More

The legendary Shubert Theater in New Haven CT has seen the premier of many classic Broadway shows. Renovated and brought back to life in the 80's this palace among theaters is a fine example of classic American theater. Not a bad seat in the house you can have a grand time in this true gem.

The Schubert is a nicely cleaned up old historic theater with comfortable seats, good acoustics and a very pleasant staff. Parking can be slow and congested in this neighborhood but anything at the Schubert is well worth the minor hassles to get there.

Recently saw Jersey Boys at the Schubert Theater, which is located near the New Haven Green...the Theater which first opened in 1914 is an historic landmark and as a smaller more intimate theater provides good seating for viewing shows. But BEWARE of parking...we arrived 45 minutes before the show on a Sunday afternoon and traffic was horrendous. The parking garage... More

The Shubert is one of New Haven's gems. Broadway shows, great musicians, and specialty shows like the Blue Men all come to the Shubert. It is a wonderful old theater in the classic design sense. There isn't a bad seat in the house. Great for kids shows on occasion. Near a host of great restaurants. Great spot for date night... More

The Shubert is a throwback to the days when shows opened there and then went on to Broadway. It is an elegant reminder of more glamorous times. My granddaughter and I loved our experience attending Clifford the Big Red Dog at a Saturday matinee. The show was well-done and lots of fun. Parking easy right next door.
