“You will be shocked!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

You will be shocked at the quality of the productions at the New London Barn Playhouse. For the past five summers we have made a special trip to see a show. Two have been spectacular, two excellent, and one very good. The space is intimate and the talent is exceptional. Cant wait to come next summer!

The young actors/actresses are superb singers during this summer rep season! Musicals are excellent and most entertaining.

We splurged on seats in the "royal box" and enjoyed the show thoroughly - high energy, creative sets, talented cast. Great value!

“Classy musicals in the Barn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

Each year, the troupe gets better and the choreographers do a better job on the very very small stage. Nobody seems to mind that no seat offers full view of the stage and pit. My grandfather converted the barn into a playhouse; it now has air-condidtioning too! Rent a five cent pillow to raise you up.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

I'm from NY... it was like watching these people perform who you knew were going to be on Broadway one day. It was impressive for a "done-up" barn..
