An historic theatre in New Hope, PA (Bucks County). Recently renovated, but with the same look and feel of days gone by. Some amazing TV and Stage stars have graced this very stage. Today it offers excellent performances by those well-known performers and up and coming stars.

The current show is the Rocky Horror Show This version is XXX. I think many people in the audience were uncomfortable. I would not recommend this presentation. Other shows we saw were excellent

We went to the Sunday afternoon performance of The Rocky Horror Show and were not disappointed. the actors were professional and captivating, their performance kept us engaged and was lively,colorful and definitely not boring. This was a fun show with never a dull moment. Be advised, the content is for adults, not for young children. This was our first time... More

Tickets at one time were $20, now they range from $30-$60 but with an increase in name acts. It's still a small comfortable rustic intimate theater. Seats afford an excellent view of the stage with a modern... More

They completely renovated this playhouse a few years ago. My wife and I have seen several plays here since and it is a wonderful change! The venue is very nice and the bar on the back of the playhouse over looking the Delaware River is especially quaint. If you haven't been you need to make time to try it out.... More

Went to the playhouse last night for the first time. Although it was preview night, the play went smoothly. Great singing and professional acting. Will definitely go again, although it is a four hour drive Makes a nice weekend with the wife.
