Reimagining itself in recent years, Westport Country Playhouse is rapidly emerging as a nationally recognized professional theater. Under the artistic direction of Mark Lamos and management direction of Michael Ross, the Playhouse creates five live theater experiences, produced at the highest level, from April through November. Its vital mix of works---dramatic, comedic, occasionally exploratory and unusual---expands the audience’s sense of what theater can be. The depth and scope of its productions display the foremost theatrical literature from the past---recent as well as distant---in addition to musicals and premieres of new plays. During the summer, the Playhouse is home to the Woodward Internship Program, renowned for the training of aspiring theater professionals. Winter at the Playhouse, from November through March, offers events outside of the main season---Family Festivities presentations, Script in Hand play readings and a Holiday Festival. In addition, businesses and organizations are encouraged to rent the handsome facility for their meetings, receptions and fundraisers

The acting and story were suburb. The play flowed very nicely and you could connect and enjoy each character. What I didn't enjoy was the woman sitting two rows in front of me who kept dental flossing her teeth in the open and with the...More

The Westport Playhouse is one of the foremost theater institutions in the country and the residents of fairfield county are very fortunate to have it in our backyard. The shows tend be very well picked and the talent on the stage is New York quality.

The Westport Country Playhouse has gone from a summer theater to one of the most vibrant community theaters in Connecticut. The quality of the productions are excellent and the renovation spearheaded by Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman made a difference.

The playhouse did a season ending musical, Camelot and did it very well. It is a challenge to get a full production musical on the small stage and with a cast large enough to look convincing. Westport county Playhouse pulled it off. Slick scenery, a...More

Outstanding productions, thoroughly professional, good sight lines. And visit Positano around back for a special meal and superb wines. An excellent way to spend an evening.
