Last night's performance of The Nerd was the absolute worst play we have ever seen (and we have seen many!). HORRIBLE dialogue; childish acting, not ONE laugh, silly, bathroom humor. We left after the first act. Particularly galling is that we paid $75 per ticket...More

I bought tickets on-line. And, the very next day, I received an email from TravelZoo.com offering discounted tickets. I requested a refund of the difference & I was told that they couldn't do that. We were SO disappointed we spent good money on "premium" seats...More

I visited the theatre for the first time recently. The theatre seating is very good, not a bad seat in the house. The show, "Buddy, the Buddy Holly Story," was exceptional. So why did I only give it three stars you might wonder? Parking...the parking...More

I have always enjoyed the shows at the Bucks County Playhouse. They are well produced in a quaint historic setting. There are several excellent places to do for dinner before or after the shows. It is a wonderful evening out on the town.

It is great that a small town like New Hope can have such a great resource like this theatre. We have been many times and the quality of the programming is excellent. There are two bars that serve liquor. The seats are small but comfortable....More

Went to see the Buddy Holly Story and had a wonderful time. New Hope is great at night and stores are awesome. The playhouse takes you back in time. Parking is sparse. Definitely will return in the future.

Any seat in the Playhouse is a great seat. (Personally I don't like to sit in the first three or four rows of any theater.) It's a small cozy venue. We recently saw Clue and sat in the middle of the last row. It was a full... More
