My husband and I have visited The Brown County Playhouse twice in the last couple of months. It has been an enjoyable experience both times. They have varying performances as well as run movies. Atmosphere is nice and facility is clean.

Took the fam to the Brown County Playhouse to see their Winter Show, I Believe. When they performed Christmas music, they did a decent job. But for some odd reason, they mixed in a variety of Broadway tunes too. Phantom of the Opera just doesn't put on in the Christmas mood. Our favorite part was the first, where they showed... More

So we bought tickets, early and went on a walk till closer to showtime. It worked perfectly. When we were ready we walked right in and... More

You can choose from a play to a movie it's what ever you choose, then you can easily walk to any restaurant you also choose!!! The wife and I picked Out of the Ordinary restaurant right across the street from the playhouse!!! The playhouse might not have all of the fancy things that the big city has but the wife... More

Great place... never in before the Finger-style Guitar event... but it was awesome. The stage, audience seating, and sound quality... all great for this event. Looking forward to coming back for a movie sometime.

Gotta check into their offerings. Buy your tickets earlier in the day and go in the evening to enjoy the play. The productions are very professional, entertaining and many of the actors/actresses have gone on to become famous. Just a fun place to be!

Five of us went from Bloomington to see the movie Mr. Turner on June 13th. A woman in the first row used her phone 8-10 times during the show (including the phone's flashlight). There was no caution before the show about phones. I will not be returning.

BrownCountyPlayhouse, Board Chair at Brown County Playhouse, responded to this review

The management of the Brown County Playhouse is very sorry to hear that you had such an unsatisfactory experience at the Playhouse due to the discourteousness of a member of the audience. We will insert a pre-movie slide asking audience members to turn off their phones during movies. Future movie goers can be assured that this will be done. Thank... More
