A beautiful theater where one can see the best variety of talent like Nutcracker, Baryshinikov, Ben Vereen, and Madame Butterfly.

Didn’t particularly like the show we saw (Isaac Mizrachi) which was pretty old school and boring, but the theater itself is lovely with good seating and acoustics. Hard to find parking nearby, so need to plan accordingly if that’s how you plan to go there.

We have been McCarter subscribers for years and this was definitely one of the best. The acting was incredible--true stage performers. The venue itself is great--easy parking, access to many good restaurants, extremely friendly staff.

I have been to McCarter theatre several times. The theater is small and good viewing from every seat is possible. Parking in the evenings is easy but for a matinee it might be tough. Princeton is a lovely area to walk in as well.
