Great restored theatre from the 20s. The premier of Moby Dick was held here in the 50s. Some of the seats are a bit in need of replacement, but the acoustics are excellent for music and plays.

Visited this historic theater many times. Great place to see a show. The NB symphony were great. Not a bad view in the theater. Plenty of restaurants and bars in surrounding area.

There is nothing quite like the Zeiterion, as it has everything the visitor or native New Bedford resident would want in plays, concerts, spectacles of all types. Diehard fans and first-timers alike depart sated with enjoyment, and, at the same time, already eager to return...More
