We have been going to Mac-Haydn productions for over forty years. Although some plays turn out better than others, it is never due to a lack of talent or enthusiasm on the part of the actors and crew. Three generations of our family have enjoyed...More

It's been a while since I've been to the Mac-Haydn, but it really needs to be refreshed. Stale. Dark. Bad sound. Sorry, just can't recommend this for the price of the tickets.More

Hello, Allison, We are sorry that your Mac-Haydn experience was not up to your expectations. You mention that it's been a while since you've been to a show with us, so I can't speak to exactly what might have been issues when you attended. However,...More

The most important thing to know is that the productions are absolutely first rate. This is no standard community theatre and I always feel that the actors are just taking a vacation from their Broadway shows. They are top-notch! It's a theatre in the round,...More

Mac-Haydn always has great musicals. Sister Act was no disappointment. The actors/singers were excellent. No matter where you sit, you're right there next to the show. It is an older theatre so it might be a little difficult for those who are handicapped.

Saw Sister Act today, great show, cast and performance. Have been here about 6 times now and have never been dissapointed . Small cozy theater in the round that puts on great shows. Already planning our next trip in a few weeks. Highly recommend.

We went last summer and had a wonderful time! Just the thing on a Sunday afternoon. Quick drive up the Taconic near Albany. Polished performance with beautiful sets and costumes. Well worth the drive from CT!
