“Darling Playhouse”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Lovely theater to take advantage of which such a rich history and small enough to enjoy and be comfortable. Some of the most comfortable seats we’ve sat in.

Usually very good productions and such a thrill to see the photos of the previous stars that performed at the Ivoryton Playhouse.

One annoying thing is the volunteers. They should be trained to not speak during a performance. I know how important it is to have volunteers as I too am a volunteer at a number of venues but when you trying to listen and watch a play and have volunteers sitting behind you continuingly talking is rather annoying.

“Great spot with alot of History”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Went here on 6/22/13 to see "I'm Connecticut" What a great little theater !! Seating somewhere around 300, there didn't seem to be any "bad" seats. There is parking right across the street for 5 bucks. There are plenty of restaurants within 8 miles for any kind of dining you might want before or after a show.

“Great little Theatre”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Wonderful productions, we look forward to each one. Have had season tickets for many years too. We enjoy our ride from Branford, having lunch before the shows or dinner afterward in one of the several nearby restaurants

“Not a good experience.”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Snobby and rude owners, who will look down at you. If you are a normal, down to earth, middle class person- you probably are not good enough to go there!

“Cute old fashioned live theater”
Reviewed April 25, 2013 via mobile

We went to see "Other People's Money" tonight , and it was fantastic! I hadn't been to this playhouse in 20 years... And I had forgotten how nice it was. So convenient, and a Broadway worthy rendition of a nice play. Supet duper value for the money, too!
We will be going back!
