The Highlands Playhouse offers first run movies year round and live performances in the summer. So if you're visiting and it's a rainy day, it's a nice option to take in a movie. They also offer a limited selection of wine which is fun!

Went to see The Fox on the Fairway, a comedy play that keep us laughing. The acting was good with a few mistakes but we enjoyed the play. Great thing to do in bad weather.

This is one of the highlights when we visit Asheville. The shows are very professional, and in some cases definitely compete favorably with Broadway. Top talent in a pleasant setting.
