Death of a Salesman - What a powerful, heartbreaking production. I couldn't get over how strong the whole play was from the performances to the set design to the direction. I never realized how strong a dramatic actor George Wendt could be but the same...More

Dark, depressing, powerful and fantastic! Three hours that locked in our attention span. All the actors were amazing. We are used to musicals but we loved this play and we love St Jacobs Playhouse. A 1.5 hour drive from Niagara Falls and well worth it....More

We went to see George Wendt, but we'll return again and again for acting that's on par with anything I've seen in London's West End, in NYC, Oregon's Shakespeare Festival, Stratford, or the Shaw Festival. The Playhouse itself is unique with its comfortable and intimate...More

Awesome performance by all actors/actresses. George Wendy carried the show for 3 hours and his performance was outstanding. So different a role from his comedic days. I have never had a bad experience at St. Jacobs Playhouse or Drayton Theatre.
