We are so glad you enjoyed your night with us! For your future visit, we recommend parking across the street at the hospital parking deck. It's only $5. The entrance is directly in front of our main doors.

The show is captivating, and the food is pretty good! We saw Macbeth and then went back to see the comedy of errors. I would recommend the apple cobbler and the tomato soup.

We had a very pleasant Friday night dinner and theater evening at The Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse. I loved the mac n cheese style gnocchi. The rest of the family ate the more traditional shepherds pie and stews. The play - Barrymore- was interesting.

I agree that it depends on the play and the maturity level of the 11 y/o child.
