“Old and nostalgic”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

This was an old time theater. The theater was well maintained, with pictures of old stars on the walls that performed at the theater. We enjoyed the show very much. The stars were very entertaining.

“ivoryton playhouse, connecticut”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

A quaint superb playhouse in Ivoryton, CT. If you like plays and a country atmosphere you need to go. First though stop by the Centerbrook Pizza House about 2 miles away for the best pizza in the state.

“Delightful tiny antique theater in bucolic New England”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

I've been to 3 plays at Ivoryton and they all have been delightful. I saw the show Dreamgirls 2 weeks ago and it was terrific. Personally I thought it better than the Broadway production as you were concentrating on the actors and not the overbloated scenery you get in NYC. They do musicals and regular plays. Prices are reasonable, about $30-$40 for a ticket. They offer dinner/combo deals with local restaurants, one of them is Gabrielle's about 10 min away and their food is terrific.

Parking is tight, you pay if you go across the street to their lot. However, get there about 20-30 minutes before and you may find street parking. Be careful where you do park so you do not get a ticket.

Staff there is always pleasant/friendly. There is a pub-type restaurant across the street from the theater. (never ate there)

“As always a entertaining evening”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Saw Footloose which unfortunately did not have Kevin Bacon in it. A fun production with some very talented performers. Good music and dancers who amazingly didn't fall off its small stage

“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.
