We went to Gloucester Stage Company for the first time recently and saw a terrific 2-person show called The Flight of the Monarch. The venue is intimate but not cramped and all seats have a good view. We will definitely come back for more shows!...More

Theater courageously offers new plays and regional players. They do a lot of Israel Horovitz and his work is always fun. Intimate. Regardless of your seat, you are close to the action.
