The best acoustics anywhere--truly a sophisticated venue for music and performance. There is not a bad seat on the house, and the stage overlooks the ocean. WOW!

Saw Judy Collins and she was fabulous. We have seen many performances here including dave Brubeck. It is a beautiful venue with a 50' window behind the stage which opens on the ocean. Accoustics are outstanding. With only 325 seats everyone is near the performers. It is worth the trip to see this fabulous venue in a beautiful seaside community.

A beautiful small music venue. opened a couple of years back. All the seats except the rear balcony are very good, and the balcony's not bad. I've been there for a variety of musical performances and enjoyed them all. Parking at the bank across the street is free and convenient if you arrive early - although nearby dining options are limited.

Wonderful entertainment at a great price! The view is beautiful, and the volunteers who work there will make you experience one you won't likely forget. Very nice!

What a jewel ---- an intimate setting with an expansive ocean vista as a backdrop --- terrific seating everywhere - great acoustics --- third floor with food, drink, and exquisite ocean and beach vistas --- and a very comfortable convenient theatre --- parking was easy and free or couple of dollars off street -- a 2 minute walk to the theatre ---- and such talent. We have gone twice now - to see Tom Rush and Judy Collins. Both shows were fantastic. Where can you go on intermission and get home made chocolate cake and a glass of wine and sit down and relax for 15 minutes? not Boston that is for sure. This is a must do attraction. Plan a day and have lunch or dinner in Rockport before or after the show. The venues are all on line --- prices are great. During one intermission, we went outside the theatre in the streets of Rockport - walked around and peaked in some shops on a summer night..and then scooted back in and into our seats oin 2 minutes (you cant do that in one of the big Boston theatres. I believe the place seats just 300 so it is such an easy place to get in and out of.... Do it once and you will go back time and again
