They completely renovated this playhouse a few years ago. My wife and I have seen several plays here since and it is a wonderful change! The venue is very nice and the bar on the back of the playhouse over looking the Delaware River is especially quaint. If you haven't been you need to make time to try it out.... More

Went to the playhouse last night for the first time. Although it was preview night, the play went smoothly. Great singing and professional acting. Will definitely go again, although it is a four hour drive Makes a nice weekend with the wife.

Our party of three had attended a play at the Playhouse on July 31st. 2016. Playhouse had been renovated and is centrally located in the city of New Hope Pa. Suggest using the $20.00 valet service since parking is at a premium in the town and you can stay parked at the theater at that price all day and enjoy... More

We have seen a few theatrical production at this theater and the last one was by far the best. It was the Buddy Holly Story; lively, entertaining, and well produced. The young motivated cast was very proficient in recreating their 50's characters ,and the musical abilities ranged from good to great. Overall an outstanding performance that left the audience standing... More

The venue is small and the staff is a little over-eager. However, the real takeaway is that you may be able see an off-Broadway production without the hassle of NYC traffic,pedestrians or folks.

Bucks County Playhouse has wonderful shows. The theater is comfortable and all seats provide a good view of the stage. A great place to go for a matinee or an evening of entertainment in scenic New Hope. The only downside is parking. Limited metered spaces at the theater unless you want valet parking which costs $20 plus a tip.

We just enjoyed the Buddy Holly Story. A fun night was had by all! The entertainers went over the top to please the audience and this playhouse is one of the best I've been to. When your in the area don't overlook the Bucks County Playhouse. You won't be sorry!

Outstanding cast straight from Broadway...The Buddy Holly Story is a "Must See" for any generation. Can't say enuf about the hi-energy cast. Toes tapping, dancing in my seat. Good ole' rock n roll , in its infancy. The Playhouse is an excellent venue. And sitting in the heart of New Hope where u can stroll the streets for some nice... More

Saw the Buddy Holly story here. It was great. We were in Bucks county for our 36th wedding Anniversary and happen to see that was playing and decided to go. Great little Play house. We really enjoyed it.
