The callus disrespect of the Paper Mill to sell a set of subscription seats out from under a loyal couple who has supported The Playhouse as patrons & contributors since the 1960's is beyond belief. Though The Theater cites an April "expiration" on subscription renewal as the reason for it's mistreatment of the couple, the mystical date does not appear... More

Grab dinner before, see a great show and be home before 11 without ever crossing a bridge! Just saw Million Dollar Quartet. Fabulous. Parking at playhouse or down the road at public parking.

We have been subscribers for over 30 years and you can't beat the quality of the performances. Getting there is easy, we park for free on the street, and best of all no tolls!

We saw The Guardian and A Comedy of Tenors, both excellent acting. The noise level for the musical could have been lower, though. Seats were very comfortable and view of the stage was great from different places. Close by is a small restaurant.

I have attended performances at the Paper Mill Playhouse since I was a child. The shows were always good, but in recent years, they are outstanding! I wish they still offered 6 shows during the season rather than 5, but not long ago, the theatre almost closed. SO GLAD it didn't! I live in town and respect this theatre as... More

I lived in the area for years without ever visiting the Paper Mill Playhouse. A theater buff friend who lives on Long Island finally got me to go here when she got a subscription. She'd run out of shows to see in NYC with her teen daughter, so subscribed to the Paper Mill. I can't believe I waited so long.... More

I have been a season ticket holder for many years. Most of the plays are very good but every once in awhile there is a clunker which keeps me from giving it five stars. Several of the plays have gone onto Broadway. Overall I think it is well worth the money

I should have done more research before purchasing the tickets to this show. The story line was a bit raunchy and just came up short. The actors were first rate and had great voices (really really wish they sang more)-but honestly the whole thing with the 'tongue' was disgusting--such a waste of talent.
