We have attended quite a few productions at this theater and have found all to be well performed and staged. This recreation of the aging Algonquin Theater is a genuine addition to the arts community. Professional theater equipment complements the local and touring artists in a comfortable space.

Saw my first movie here, "The Swashbuckler"! Marquis out front, huge chandelier inside hanging from or ate ceiling, beautiful lobby. All of that is gone now and so are the movies. I'm not culturally jaded. There's art and entertainment here to be enjoyed, but you have to be a fan of the Oldies or way-way-way off Broadway shows and educational... More

Thanks for taking the time to review Algonquin Arts Theatre. If you're looking for children's programming, this summer we'll have Peter Pan (the Broadway version) in July. Last year's Little Mermaid production was a huge hit with the kids, so we're excited to do it again this summer! More

I've been there about a dozen times and have yet to see a show I didn't enjoy. We just went to see "White Christmas", probably the best show I've seen there yet, but I enjoyed Damn Yankess, South Pacific. Their dancers are talented and the singers are always great.

When my children were small, I used to bring them to the education series shows, and as they've grown, we've enjoyed many performances at the Algonquin Arts Theatre. There is no such thing as a bad seat in this venue, and the performances are very good.

I actually think the singer doing the Patsy Cline songs was better than Patsy Cline herself originally. This singer had a richer, clearer voice. and did the songs spot on as Patsy did them. It was a great show.

Algonquin Theatre has gone through many changes throughout the years. Today, it is a wonderful performing arts venue. The chairs have all been replaced for the comfort of the theatre goer. There are some great shows , and very reasonable prices. A treasure for Manasquan.
