Girls getaway weekend, decided to attend an improv comedy show at the Central NY Playhouse. It is housed inside a shopping center, kind of hard to locate at first. Staff was very accommodating, limited drinks and snacks are offered. No restrooms inside the theater, have to use mall restrooms. Not a deal breaker at all. Enjoyable evening!

Though they normally do plays or improv, there was a comedy showcase that night where local comics competed for first place. The headliner was a local celebrity from the classic rock radio station. He did really well. The crowd loved him. Cuse Comedy Showcase- I recommend it.

I have added the CNY Playhouse to my list of a great night out and they never disappoint! Lend me A Tenor is the second play that I have seen at the playhouse, hysterical and had the whole audience in tears of laughter! It is a small playhouse but for me that adds to the charm...there is not a bad... More

CNY Playhouse is one of my favorite places to go for a night out in Syracuse! The shows are always great, and I like that there is a lot of variety. I also like not having to worry about parking, since it is located in Shoppingtown Mall. I am a big advocate of supporting our local businesses and community. I've... More

My wife and I recently attended the play " Lend me a tenor ". If you enjoy a good laugh you'll really like this one. As a season ticket holder I can honestly say that I have never seen a bad play. The CNY playhouse is a work in progress. After a relocation from another site with very little money... More

I have been a loyal patron since CNY Playhouse has opened, heck, since it was Not Another Theater Company, and I can honestly say that I have never had a bad experience. I have laughed so hard I've almost peed my pants, cried to the point of sobbing, and have leftv every show being amazed at the level of amateur... More

It was our first and last time at this site. The show, Lend Me a Tenor was in fact cute and well orchestrated. The actors/actresses did a nice job. This however simply does not make up for the rest of the mess. The floors, both in the seating area and on the plywood stage are filthy and in desperate need... More

We went here for a comedy play. I couldn't believe how bare bones the space is -- very uncomfortable chairs at folding tables with plastic tablecloths, and bathrooms elsewhere in the mall. If the play had been good I suppose I could have overlooked the surroundings, but I just kept checking my watch to see when we might be able... More

CnyPlayhouse, Manager at Central New York Playhouse, responded to this review

We are sorry you had this experience, and we do not believe this is typical for our venue. We are not sure what show you saw since we did not produce a comedy play in May or June. We hope you give us another chance. More
