Been here many times.

Wonderful venue and great performers/concerts. Get there early because parking can be tricky. Love the Cabaret seating and highly recommend it.

We have been season subscribers to the CT Repertory Theater for several years, and are never disappointed. A wide range of productions, with an incredible collection of talented students and actors. And, concerts with many of the best artists come to UConn as well - we've seen Chris Isaak, Keb' Mo, Natalie McMaster, and others.

Whether one is traveling or just a 'locavoir' Jorgensen is the most rewarding arts experience one can expect. Acrobats, musicians and theatre performers of the highest caliber...pour their hearts out in each and every show. There may be the BigApple and the BostonBeanpot shows but Jorgensen ranks with their style and gusto. A glorious adventure on every stage performance. Highly... More

We have seen some excellent shows and some not so good shows. I think the management of Jorgenson needs to do better marketing research as to what do people (students, faculty/staff, residents of Mansfield and other towns in vicinity) really want to see. Proof for that is that some shows are half full and the Theatre still has to pay... More

From student led productions to summer shows featuring stars from Broadway and Hollywood alike, there's something for everyone in Jorgensen's theatrical season. With unique offerings such as cabaret-style seating, where patrons can wine and dine at their own private table during the production, this venue provides a quality experience at reasonable rates. With the nearby parking garage, it will only... More

It is a great university showplace. The shows are very diverse and of high to excellent quality. I can't remember when we last were disappointed in attending.

Over the years we have seen SO MANY great shows at the Jorgensen. We are blessed to live nearby and attend entertainment of excellent quality without driving to NYC. Most recently we attended Trombone Shorty and Straight No Chaser concerts. Both concerts were full houses. The Jorgensen offers a wonderful variety of cultural entertainment each year including kid friendly shows... More

Great venue with a nice layback feel. Excellent acoustics, Cabaret seating allows for plenty of room for spontaneous dancing , which will occur frequently if they have acts like the great Trombone Shorty again. Hard to believe this is part of a college.

The Jorgensen has a really wide array of performances, especially for being on such a rural university campus. There are some great performances at this theatre, and tickets are affordable for students.

I've been going to the Jorgensen for years. My parents used to take us when my sister and I were little, I've seen adult shows, and now I am taking my kids to see the great kids' programming that they have to offer. It is a smaller sized theater, so it is hard to find a bad seat. I usually... More
