We enjoyed our traditional annual sisters' visit to Cape May's live theatre presentation... This time Barefoot in the Park. What fun! Plan ahead. Buy your tickets early. Not a bad seat in the house. And the performances always deliver. Support the arts!

We saw the play, "The Whipping Man". Very professional cast, excellent production, beautiful historic venue. Air conditioned, too. Seating is tiered, so there is not a bad seat in the house. We'll definitely check them out again on our next visit to the cape.

It was a lovely old Theater, we enjoyed the play and character very much. Hope to do it again very soon.

We went to the theater for 'A Cape May Christmas', and really enjoyed it. The theater is small, and the seating is tiered, so there really isn't a bad seat in the house. Everything is clean and updated. Only water available as far as concessions.
