“EXCELLENT PERFORMANCES, AWFUL FOOD”

Westchester Broadway Theatre
Ranked #1 of 7 things to do in Elmsford
Attraction details
Reviewed March 11, 2014

We have seen many shows over several years. The performances are always excellent. The performers work very hard to bring about an entertaining experience. However, the food is what will keep us from returning in the future. Some reviewers liken it to wedding food; it's worse than that. Wedding food is at least edible. This place needs to reconsider offering food at all if it can't improve its offerings. The last time we saw a performance, the fish was too old, hard, tasteless, and foul smelling to be able to eat anything that was within a foot of it. We basically ate bread and ice cream for dinner. I actually e-mailed the theater and told them they would have been better off ordering food from the nearby diner and serving it to the audience. There is no excuse for bad food. Yes, I am aware that this is not an upscale restaurant and you don't come here soley for the dining experience; but I at least expect to be able to eat food that is presented to me. I am not that picky but food that is not edible is not acceptable. The theater itself needs a makeover. When you first walk in to the theater, there is a stale smell that overcomes you; it takes a while to get used to it; this was not a one-time occurence; it has happened over the last several visits. So while the performances are very entertaining, the venue is convenient and close to home, the food is unacceptable and keeps you from enjoying the total experience.

Go in with low expectations of the food and you will be happy. Service was wonderful. Food has to be prepared in advance like a wedding, so vegetables are over cooked and rest is just OK. Show though was amazing. We saw Rag Time. What a fabulous cast! Very talented. We loved it. This was our first time there and are already planning our next trip back.

Have been to this theater many times both afternoon and evening and never been disappointed. The food is decent as is the prices for both the shows and food. Plus the convenience of a local place without the hassle of driving into the city and paying for parking. The only criticism would be that the place could use a "facelift".

I don't know what it was, but it was missing something. Felt more like a High School play if anything. The costumes where great. The meals were decent and any seat at this theater is wonderful.

Although there were a few scenes that were only a 4-star at first, I felt that, as soon as the iceberg was seen, the play leaped into top-notch territory, handling the character's coming to terms with danger, separation, death, guilt, responsibility. Great effects (stars, clouds) and gripping use of a stage-sized sketch of the ship, shadow-style iceberg, sound effects and photos of real victims. I am still thinking about the play today, which is always a good sign.
