Nice theater, convenient parking garage next to the theater. Many convenient restaurants close by. Made for a very pleasant evening-parking, dinner, and a show.

We have been season subscribers for many years. It just gets better ALL the time! Productions are often as good --and sometimes better than NYC!! Shubert is a true gem and New Haven is lucky to have it. SUPPORT IT!!

Great theater. Saw mowtown the musical, which was a fantastic show. Theater is beautiful old theater, not verry large, but seating was comfortable. Snacks available, although not a good variety. Parking garage located right next door to theater. Gail

We loved seeing RENT at the Shubert. It's quaint and the crowd was enthusiastic. I would definitely try and get tickets in the middle of the theater. We could not see some of the scenes in the wings of the stage. It was a little...More
