The whole atmosphere here is wholesome, unpretentious, and honest. You won't find any of the typical showbiz, Broadway snobbery here, in spite of all the famous people affiliations, which is SO nice! It's quite humbling to consider the people serving you dinner are the ones performing on stage, as well as in the kitchen. Very heartwarming experience, for which everyone... More

Friends took us there with little advance description. I am not fond of live plays. But this one was totally unexpected. Really special and entertaining. The meal was also well done. Although this is for a great cause, it is a great experience in itself.

Regarding the show, it was brilliant. At one point (the grape cluster) I leaned over to my friend and said “I think that one is on a digital screen…that cant be live”…then the grapes came into the crowd! Unreal. I then thought to myself, “I wish they would turn up the lights at the end so we could see how... More

I have always wanted to visit Famous People Players since I was a kid. I finally took my parents for Christmas. We saw opening night of "Great Balls of Fire". It was amazing! I have not been to dinner theatre in quite a while and was quite happy to hear FPP was still holding to such a nice tradition. Dinner... More

I went here in mid-November for a Christmas party with colleagues. The dinner was great, especially since the people working here are cooks/servers/performers all in one. All the employees at Famous People Players are special. I'm shocked that I didn't know about this place sooner. The show was unique. I sat right at the front and sometimes the actors would... More

I saw the holiday show at Famous People's Players this past weekend with my family and had a terrific time. The food was excellent and the show was amazing! The performers completely disappear into the darkness, bringing the beautiful prop characters to life. I didn't know much about the performance ahead of time, and was very happy we went. To... More
