Hubby and I spent Saturday eve, after an extremely disappointing meal at the Ebbitt Room (again...not sure how this place received such top marks), at the theatre. The performance was "Sex with Strangers." We were very pleasantly surprised.

We saw the play, "The Whipping Man". Very professional cast, excellent production, beautiful historic venue. Air conditioned, too. Seating is tiered, so there is not a bad seat in the house. We'll definitely check them out again on our next visit to the cape.

Having attended at least 200 performances at The Robert Shackleton Playhouse of Cape May Stage over the years I'm still astounded by the quality of entertainment and talent which this organization continues to contribute to the entire Cape May Community and beyond. Kudos to Roy Steinberg and his predecessors who have elevated this theater company to the top of the... More

I attended the opening night of the Cape May Stage powerful production “The Whipping Man” a provocative story about the adjustments in life after the end of the Civil War that kept us on the edge of our seats. The evening started with a wonder event on the stages grounds put on by one of the local Civil War reenactment... More

Hats off to Cape May Stage for a powerful production of THE WHIPPING MAN. Powerful and provocative story that just keeps pulling you in until the end. The chemistry of the cast was amazing with some of the most dynamic performances I've seen in quite some time. Excellent, top-quality production! Encouraging everyone to catch this show before it closes! -Thomas... More

We went to the theater for 'A Cape May Christmas', and really enjoyed it. The theater is small, and the seating is tiered, so there really isn't a bad seat in the house. Everything is clean and updated. Only water available as far as concessions.

Two actors capture a glimpse into the final year of Francis Biddle's life, in a thought-provoking work based on the playwright's own experience. Only the playwright knows how accurate a portrait she has painted of this intriguing man, and his final secretary, but it held our attention, and makes me curious to know more about Mr. Biddle and his era.

What a beautiful theater and easy walking distance from all. We saw "Trying" which had a remarkable and historical story to tell and the remarkable and accomplished cast did it justice. Bravo!!
