This is such a lovely theater and I wish I had more time to attend functions there. The classic movie showings, the simulcast of the Met, and live stage as well as musicians. I'm not a follower of popular groups, singers, etc. I did go...More

National stars come to this playhouse and give us a taste of the big city! Wonderful place for friends to meet and enjoy a relaxing evening out.

Great theatre with an ever interesting line up of shows. The staff are very friendly and the space is small so every seat is a good one! If you're in town check out one of their shows. You wont be disappointed.

This is lovely space in a converted building on Main Street. There is a great display of Kate memorabilia in the lobby because she summered nearby. Friendly staff. A triumph of small theatre/live music.

They do it all - comedy, music, and drams from the famous to the relatively unknown, punctuated by screenings of Katherine Hepburn films. Go on line to check out the schedule - there is something for everyone.

I, honestly, don't know: I 'm sorry. We sat in the 2nd to the last row/center of the theater and stage view was nice as was the audio. Trip Advisor won't allow me to include a web address for the theater but if you visit... More
