The fastest 90 minutes ever, actors were both amazing, Even those who know little or care about art will find meaning and joy in this play, along with irony, pathos and truth. I recommend this as a must see event.

First of all, thank you for visiting the Playhouse and I hope you will return another time. We produce an eclectic selection of plays throughout the year (our season runs from March through December). Inevitably not every play will please everyone, nor should it. We...More

We took in Madame Sherry and were thoroughly entertained. Definitely would recommend. Highly impressed with the level of talent. It was a Thursday night and the place was only half full, so we could have been last minute.

Having been to Sturgeon Bay many, many times, we never paid attention to the Third Avenue Playhouse. A mistake! We just saw "Gin Game" at this darling, pristine theatre. Not only was "Gin Game" wonderful...funny and heart wrenching...but the theatre itself was just a joy....More
