Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Established in 2004, StageOne is a 225 seat venue in the heart of downtown Fairfield, Connecticut. Originally built primarily for theatre productions, StageOne is consistently voted as the best place to hear live music in the entire region because of the quality of the sound, the intimacy of the space, and the caliber of the artists. There is literally not a bad seat in the house and there are few venues in the country where the fans can be so close to the world-renowned artists who grace the stage in over 200 concerts and productions a year. The artists love to perform here and frequently cite StageOne as their absolute favorite venue. This brings out the very best in them, which is reflected in the quality of their performances and enjoyment of their fans.

“Small, intimate and wonderful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

We have seen several performances at FTC. All seats provide a great view of the stage since it is only several feet away. The sound systems are very good as well. There is a refreshment area in the lobby with a nice, but limited selection of snacks and drinks. The theater is steps away from the Fairfield downtown train station. Parking can be a bit of a problem, but not a big one. Plenty of nearby restaurants for after-theater dining.The FTC is a great venue offering a variety of live entertainment.

“music galor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

I have been to Fairfield Theater Company's concerts a number of times. They get name acts in a theater best described as " every seat is a front row seat", not literally, but effectively. With three of four concerts a week there is always something for you.

I was on the board of directors but no longer am.

This is a fantastic venue. It is small, intimate, great sound. What live music should be. I highly recommend seeing any band you might possibly like there.

I've seen a bunch of shows here and at the Klein. Never, ever was disappointed. FTC downtown is like hanging in a living room and the Klein is a beautiful theatre for larger acts...well worth the visit

“Best kept secret”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Fairfield Threatre Company (FTC) is a gem. Annual membership provides advance notice and ticket sales of upcoming events. Great artists in a small, intimate venue. From Buddy Guy, to Devon Allman, to Tab Benoit, to Hot Buttered Rum...A real comfortable place to experience incredible music.
