I was staying at the Heldrich across the street and had an evening alone with nothing to do. The receptionist recommended George Street Playhouse. They were playing a charming play called "Buyer & Cellar" with an actor named John Tartaglia. I was sceptic to a one man show, but I soon changed my mind. A wonderful play, a great actor... More

Almost everything that is put on at the George St Playhouse is enjoyable. Overall, the theatre experience there is far better than many other regional theaters. We have been subscribers for a while and have been very happy with the play selection most of the time. It is too bad that they do not always fill up. We have never... More

From the outside it looks like a movie theater, but step inside and you're transformed into another world. Architecture inside is grandoise. Seating from any seat is a perfect view of the stage.

We have visited the playhouse several times. Most recently, my wife took me for my birthday. Whether your attending a play or a acrobatic display of talent, it is delight to be there. The seating is perfect with chairs having ample room. The acoustics are perfect so anyone can hear throughout the theater. The performances are terrific. If you don't... More

I had never been to the playhouse and I recently saw the Fabulous Lipitones with one of my sons. The theater was very clean, beautiful and cozy. The actors were talented and engaging. I was also pleasantly surprised for intermission that I could enjoy a glass of wine. They also had several beers and some snacks. I will definitely go... More

First of all, there are hardly any bad seats in this theater. My seats are on the floor in the 2nd row on the aisle and have been a subscriber for weveral seasons. These seats are great because the stage is only 1 foot higher than the floor and your head tilts slightly up. The plays overall are excellent. Occasionally,... More

There are no bad seats, and the shows are usually Very Good to Excellent. Lots of great restaurants to choose from within walking distance for dinner or a drink before the show.

We have attended numerous productions at the George Street Playhouse. The productions are almost always of high quality, with some major name actresses/actors and several plays having moved from GSP to off-Broadway! Almost all seats have excellent ot good visibility. Would not sit at stage level, but instead suggest being slightly elevated. Center seats are better than the sides, but... More
