It is always an unforgettable experience whether you just went recently or went a long time ago. We saw Man of La Mancha at the Paper Mill years ago and it´s still etched in my mind. That is a tribute to the Paper Mill's excellence! Of course, more recent shows have also been wonderful. Man of La Mancha was just... More

Went to see Bronx Tale. Exceptional production. Enjoyed it immensely. Had outstanding seats and would love to sit there every time I went here. Catch this on Broadway as it will be a HUGE hit IMHO.

The Paper Mill Playhouse has been around a long time, and is another Jersey gem. First, there are no bad seats, No matter where you sit, you will have an excellent view. And the patrons are respectful. I've never heard a cell phone ring in the many times I have attended

We have been going for several years. Usually top notch entertainment. They deserved to win the Tony Award for regional entertainment. Easy to get to. Enjoyed most of this season. We had purchased a 3 show package. We had balcony seats, which were fine. We also received coupons for the parking lot and that worked out well. We saw A... More

We just saw West Side Story and after the previous reviews were excited. While the lead for Maria had an amazing voice, we weren't entirely pleased with the production and here's why: -It would have been nicer if there was more to develop the characters, especially the relationship between Maria and Toni; -It should be noted that the show is...
