My first visit here and I was totally impressed with the caliber of the production, particularly the staging ! I was drawn to "The Bodyguard" because I wanted to see Deborah Cox perform and also wanted to see how the movie translated into a live show. I was not disappointed . This production was definitely Broadway caliber. Tickets are not... More

A Bronx Tale previewed here, it was great to see it before it hits NYC, the ticket prices way more affordable, parking right there, lots of restaurants in town and adjacent to the theatre. Facilities clean, always something clever at the concession stand, plus you can bring your cocktails into the show. Great gift shop. Children's events are really adorable,... More

Professional performers but theater is a bit run down and very crowded. Tickets can be very expensive for decent seats.

We are in our 3rd year of annual subscription. We love going to the shows! The cast and stages are always amazing and The Bodyguard was by far the absolute best one yet! I would highly recommend for anyone who loves Broadway shows but doesn't want to go into the City.

It is a great neighborhood performing arts center. Both local and nationally known artists have appeared on the stage in drama and musicals. We have seen amazing shows at the Papermill over the past 8+years. Many to later open on a Broadway stage.

My wife reminded me as she often does that she bought tickets to a play. You see, we homeschool our children, all 4 of them and educate them through life experiences. It's one thing to learn about Bunker Hill in MA when you can take them to Bunker Hill. This theater is a very nice theater. Old and rustic but... More

Fabulous Broadway shows. Great choice for a subscription. Whether a musical, comedy or drama excellent casts, staging are consistent. The Bodyguard was the last show we saw and it was EXCELLENT. Saturday night audience are usually not as apt for standing ovations. The cast actually did an extra number as we all stood and applauded. The Paper Mill Playhouse won... More

A fabulous night. This show was spectacular, which included the music, choreography & staging. The seating is very spacious and comfortable. On site parking ($9) was very organized. The Bodyguard with Deborah Cox will most likely end up on Broadway after this national tour.

I couldn't wait to see their production of the Bodyguard. It didn't disappoint. The show was wonderful. The lead singers were great. What I want to say is thank you to the staff at the Paper Mill playhouse. The woman behind me obviously thought it was a sing a long. She loudly sang out the songs and critiqued each one.... More
