Brian Setzer Orchestra Christmas Show

Outstanding show in a beautiful community theater. Brian Setzer is a high energy performer with a super talented backup orchestra.

Easton is incredibly blessed to have this world class theatre in our town. From amazing touring Broadway performances to big name talent, the State Theatre has it all.

Theater is very old, but I guess that is the point. The seats are small and the fees tacked on are outrageous. My kids had a concert here and the tickets were $10 a piece, but by the time the State Theatre and Easton added their fees, the tickets were $23.88 a piece. That is $13.88 extra!!! I am sure...

Yes, the Russian traveling ballet comes to Easton. We have several very young aspiring ballerinas we thought would love this holiday experience. They did indeed! The theater is well kept and parking is so much easier than heading to Manhattan. The theater is a local treasure and sure to please.

Just saw the Cuban All Stars musical show there and the sound and music were out of this world...better than in Havana. I think they travel all over the world - beautiful music for a gem of a theater. I think they have recently done some "shining up" of the venue- it looked marvelous.

Theater was sold out for Brian Wilson's 50th anniversary of Pet Sounds. This was my first time at this theater but I am used to many pre1930 theaters from around the country. The sound system was adequate. Seats were very cramped. I don't think they had the a/c on at all. It got very warm and difficult to breath at... More
