I love this theater! Went here several times for plays and each time the show is just like or sometimes better than Broadway. Tickets are reasonable, seats are all good and they always have a lot of entertainment going on. Considering joining for the season.

Skip the trip & expense of NYC & enjoy wonderful theatre near home. It seems as though each performance outperforms the last. Enjoy Northport at it's best!

As a Season Ticket Holder for many years, I can say that Engeman has it all. The plays are great and the acting amazing. I am always pleasantly surprised by the staging of productions. They do a terrific job. The bar and snacks are nice and Valet parking is perfect. A lovely time each and every time I've attended.

Saw 2 shows this year - Frank Sinatra and Memphis. Both were extraordinary! The talent is equal to Broadway, sound system is great and the theater is cozy with every seat a delight. It felt like being in Old Blue Eyes living room for a private serenade. Go early and enjoy a cocktail with an appetizer.

This theatre now seems to offer musicals more than anything else, which is fine because the singing and dancing are great. Just saw "Mama Mia", and thoroughly enjoyed it. But then "12 Angry Men" from a couple of years ago, was superb as well.
