Last nights play, The White Chip, was autobiographical. About addiction and recovery, it's an amazing life story for Sean and was an incredibly excellent performance on stage. We are very much enjoying his work with the MRT, and I highly recommend you consider attending!

We saw The Lion on opening weekend. One of the best plays we've seen there, and we've been going there for nearly 20 years. The new artistic director has certainly started this year off with a bang.

We have been season subscribers now for 3 years, and the plays are always interesting and frequently are excellent. The last play of the season this year was an example - The Outgoing Tide. Funny, but a real tough one for most of us in the audience - not too many dry eyes in the house at the end, and... More

We went to see the play Dusk Rings A Bell at the MRT, and it is another winner. We have had season tickets for 3 years now, and we find the performances consistently excellent. Sometimes the play is not to our liking, but that happens with such a wide variety and we have never seen any production that was not... More

This was our first vist to MRT. It is a very small theater which is very nice, but being that the theater was so small, I felt we shouldn't have spent so much on our tickets. We sat in the orchestra, but really any location probably would have been fine. I did like the intimacy of the experience, with the... More

I'm a big fan of the MRT, in fact, I may be a little prejudice, as I'm a volunteer usher there. The house is small -- just under 300 seats -- which lends an intimacy to the productions. The actors are all professionals, many from NYC, Boston and other large cities. I'm particularly excited about the plays this year, as... More

A popular, intimate community theater. They always seem to have a diverse set of shows each season. Near lots of restaurants downtown for a nice night out.

The Merrimack Repertory Theater is a nice small theater nestled into the larger Lowell Memorial Auditorium. The theater has a perfect seating design, where there are no bad seats. The theater atracts good plays from off Broadway, it is reasonably priced and on street parking is available right out front. Plenty of nice restaurants and bars near by.

This is the place to be, if you are truly a Shakespeare persons, because all of the plays are done by people like you and me. They seem to be just starting out, BUT what a wonderful job they do. You ARE SO CLOSE TO THEM, YOU COULD ALMOST TOUCHED THEM, BUT ONE GREAT THING ABOUT THIS PLACE, IT IS... More
