My husband and I went to the Bucks County Playhouse on January 27th 2018 to see Late Night Catechism #3. It was great. We laughed the whole time. We had a wonderful night. There are really no bad seats.

Saw an off-broadway show here, “A New World.” It was funny entertaining and even had some messages regarding accepting others. The playhouse has an amazingly intimate feel while also feeling like you’re in a high school auditorium. Great sound and lights. Bathrooms were a bit...More

The theater is great!! This was the second show I’ve seen there. Just super. It’s cozy and quaint, but offers top tiered talent from New York.

This is a historic old building on a charming historic town with historic shows and talent and their Christmas show this year was wonderful , along with all their shows which rival Broadway and much Broadway talent has played here.

This little gem is on the banks of the Delaware and has really fine productions. One fun and unique thing is that they serve cocktails geared around the show! Nice outdoor patio on the river to have a drink during intermission.

Went to see the Christmas Carol show and we loved it. Lots of puns and funny insider jokes about New Hope added to the traditional Dickens story. Theater is small and all seats are good. Drinks available in the lobby are on the expensive side...More

Definitely, I brought my 6 year old son and he loved it. Some of the humor went over his head but he still enjoyed it. There were other kids in the audience as well.
