We stopped at the Dock Street Theater big during this time of Covid, we didn’t enter the inside. The outside is so reminiscent of buildings in the French Quarter of New Orleans. We were able to see the pieced together areas of new construction that joined original structures.

As we were walking we came across this beautiful structure. My husband and I was just admiring it, when a lovely older gentleman came out and said we could come in and tour. It was nice to get out of the heat and there was a bathroom inside. We enjoyed the courtyard, along with the beautiful theater. I would give it a 5 but we didn’t get to see a play. It would have been Lovely to see a play there.

Beautiful exterior. First visit was on a walking tour with a licensed guide, who brought the building to life. Rebuilt several times..may have been first theatrical building in US The second time was to use their public restroom but we also toured and talked with the staff and learned even more history. Open 9 to 5

Just walking past and decided to go inside and look around. Got a personal tour of the place for free. Did not see a show but would be a great place to see one. We were told they have a local professional theater company that performs there.

Have been here for a few events over the years and it's a cozy venue to experience whatever show you go here for. The architecture is lovely and takes you back in time.
