Saw the Buddy Holly story here. It was great. We were in Bucks county for our 36th wedding Anniversary and happen to see that was playing and decided to go. Great little Play house. We really enjoyed it.

Obviously it depends what show you are seeing but this is a nicely maintained historic old playhouse. There is some parking onsite which is nice because New Hope is always tight for parking. There is a lobby bar so you can get a beverage before the show or during intermission. Staff is freindly and helpful. Restroom capacity is very limited... More

This was our first visit to the Bucks County Playhouse and we were thrilled with it and the fantastic show we saw, The Buddy Holly Story. It was by far the best regional theater performance we've ever seen anywhere. We were blown away by the talent of the cast. The manager gave a very informative introduction about the theater's history... More

Small little bar with a great view to just sit and enjoy.Tables have neat wine bottle flower vases. I ordered mango Mojito and hubby ordered strawberry mojito. Both very tasty (mango is quite sweet be forewarned). We were... More

The play was great. Disclosure: We went because the star is my colleague's friend. The audience was on their feet and thrilled. I heard an usher tell John Dewey, who plays Buddy Holly, that she thought the performances were fantastic. All of the performers were impressive musicians. I also spoke to a husband of a BCP board member who raved.... More

I have seen this show at several theatres but this one "BLEW ME AWAY", it was from my time and it was just like being at a real concert. It was by far the greatest one I've seen. The cast was professional and it was obvious that a lot of practice went into this show. I believe everyone gave this... More

A group of friends enjoyed a first class performance today in a country playhouse with a rich heritage. First the play. Buddy Holly, a rock and roll icon of the 50's. It was as good and times even better than what we have seen it NYC for twice the price. The cast was enthusiastic, upbeat and so into their role... More

Went to the preview of Buddy Holly with some friends and it was fantastic! This is the story of a rock and roll legend. You felt like you were back in the 50's going to one of his live shows. Excellent music by the whole cast. An enjoyable, heartwarming, funny show you shouldn't miss!!!
