Great entertainment in excellent seats (a recent review says "Not a bad seat in the house" and you can take that check to the bank and cash it).

We have been coming to the Long Wharf for years. Recently, we have stepped up our patronage because the quality of the product has been on the rise.

Perhaps the best entertainment value in New Haven County. Please support the Long Wharf, you will not be disappointed.

Great, affordable live entertainment with some amazing stars. Interesting shows and there is not a bad seat in the house. Plenty of parking and easy location off the main RT 95 corridor. Two easy places to eat or have a drink before or after a show in the same parking lot.

Named for the Long Wharf port along the New Haven harbor, this theater was build in a vacant warehouse space. LWT creates a home in New Haven for regional theater where you can see diverse and entertaining performances. Saw "Crowns" where hat queens rule....The talented cast told stories complemented with uplifting gospel music. This play definitely warmed the soul.

Childrens' programs, play workshops and special events round out the theater's offerings.

The stars of Baskerville are the wardrobe mistresses who justly took a bow with the cast.at the end of the play. This farcical adaptation of teh Sherlock Holmes story had plenty of yelling, noise, closing and opening doors, and cast members playing many roles, Unfortunately, Despite all of this action , The Second Act dragged on until Holmes mercifully solved the mystery. The play was a tour de force fo rthe behind the scenes company. There were so many costume changes by the same cast members that it was almost impossible for the audience to keep them all straight. At one point the play made fun of the multiple roles. Ultimately, if you like farce and how it all fit together, this play is for you. It just didn't happen to be for me. The theater in in the round aspect of Long Wharf's main stage posed some challenges for a play with so much action. The device of many doors signifying different locations and even serving as backstage was interesting.
