Great place for a concert

Saw Theory of a Deadman at this theater. I would recommend seeing any concert or event here. Every seat is good and so is the sound. There is a bar and the prices are reasonable... read more

Ridgefield Symphony, right here in town is a real pleasure! Another town jewel! Top quality orchestration. The maestro even did a "music appreciation" at the local Ridgefield library beforehand which truly engages you and a wonderful experience.

What can I say. I love the Playhouse. Great shows. Close to home. Good value. Alison Stockel heads a great team and runs a great venue which attracts wonderful talent. We attend many performances, etc and enjoy our experience each time.

If you're thinking about seeing a live show at The Playhouse, I highly recommend you buy your tickets. I have been to 30 live concerts + seen numerous movies at this 500 seat venue. Ridgefield is so fortunate to have this venue. If you haven't been, what are you waiting for?! If you have been, keep goung and enjoy the... More

This small venue gets some great performers and there's not a bad seat in the house. Located in part of what used to be the town high school, parking could be hard to find on show night, so arrive early. If you're a plus-size person, you may fit uncomfortably in the seats. Get on the email list because popular shows... More

I came here to see "Dirty Dancing" on its 30 year release anniversary. This was put on through Fathom Events and I really enjoyed how the Ridgefield Playhouse took it to the next level. (AMC Loews theatre was also putting on this event but was more expensive and had no special things to add). They had movie cut outs and... More

We went to the see the Nutcracker at the Ridgefield Playhouse, what a very nice experience. Hazel and I wanted to see a show without paying the NYC prices. Neither of had been to Ridgefield Playhouse before, but we have heard many good things about the venue. We purchased tickets on line from the Ridgefield Playhouse. The Show was awesome,... More

Once we found the Playhouse, we were quite surprised at how terrific it was. It's a small venue, seating perhaps 500. Parking was a breeze; will-call was a breeze; getting seated was a breeze, and leaving was a breeze. You really can't ask for more; first class performers, reasonable ticket prices, and a hassle-free evening. We'll be sure to check... More
