This was a great venue for seeing RENT. The amazingly talented cast blew us away! Wonderful acoustics throughout the theater. What a great gem in our own backyard!

Great performance of Rent. Talented, energetic cast coupled with great music & choreography in an intimate setting. Ticket price is a bargain for this level of performance. Always a treat making the trip to Ivoryton.

Saw Rent again. Saw it in NYC and didn't card for it . It was much better here as you could hear the singers enunciate . Not one of my favorites but the singers were outstanding.

Went to the Ivoryton Playhouse to see the musical Chicago. The play was excellent from beginning to end with lots of dancing and singing. It was well worth the price,and a good time was had by all.

This is a small theater in a cozy part of CT. The professionalism of the actors and crew was admirable. A packed house says something about the allure of this venue.

We have seen several shows at the Ivoryton Playhouse and NONE have been disappointing! It is a very small theater with no bad seating.
