“A fantastic local gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

It is such a special treat to have this local playhouse in our community. We have watched many shows here and love the way they can attract great artists/bands. The seating is comfortable, pricing is typical for this type of venue and staff is friendly. To not have to go into New York City to see these artists is wonderful.

Highly recommend.

“The Ridgefield Playhouse Rocks!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

This place has frequent national quality shows in a small, local, intimate setting with wonderful acoustics. The Ridgefield Playhouse is a treasure, and we need to support it.

“Top quality entertainment in an intimate setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013

I am always amazed at the high quality of bookings in this small theater. Plays to live performance musical entertainment. Definitely a first-rate choice if you are in the area.

“Rock & Roll ++++”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

This is a great little not for profit venue featuring older groups,pop groups and singles who remain on tour. You will hear groups such as Kansas, Kiss,Pat Benatar, Dave Mason,Gin Blossoms,plus so many more.There is poetry reading, opera,national theatre live,and special guests like Chef Robert Irvine also included are many comedy headliners.

Because it is a small venue every seat keeps you upfront and personal with the entertainers. Seating is limited, so expect to pay a bit more than arena-type seating, $100 give or take has been my experience for popular shows.The big negative is the airplane-size seats, recently installed to accommodate larger numbers of patrons. They are not comfortable at all.

The Playhouse sells popcorn and candy snacks as well sodas and adult beverages. Alcoholic drinks are around $7

The Playhouse accepts memberships which offers discounted tickets, priority reservations and other benefits to members.

My recommendation is to enjoy a good dinner in many of Ridgefield's wonderful restaurants and then enjoy a fun show at Ridgefield Playhouse.

“Awesome resource - hidden pearl”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Fantastic venue just off the beaten path in Ridgefield. Beautifully decorated with murals in the lobby of the way it might have been in Ridgefield during colonial times..well, pre-pavement anyway. Small hall, seating less than 600 I think, with a balcony...front row is for people with short legs...great acoustics. Small, intimate for performances that you really feel a part of. Great senses of community at all of the shows regardless of the artist. Great place to watch a movie when they have showings. No hassle, plenty of parking (for movies), all the concessions, with none of the hassle. Love this place, feel lucky to have this venue with a generally fantastic line-up of talent. The kind of place Springstein, or the Stones would love to have a chance to play to re-connect with their audience. Don't miss it. It's worth the hunt to find...GPS gets you there.
