We attended a show, Always Patsy Cline. All seats are good in this theater. No,obstacles blocking your view. The acoustics are great. The theater is very well laid-out, clean, friendly employees. We went with a group of approximately 60 people and our tickets were bought ahead of time. Very easy to work with for grouping.

This is the hot ticket to have in totally hip downtown Hendersonville. Anchoring a block on the south end of Main Street, this awesome black box theatre is an offshoot of the historic Flat Rock Playhouse, NC's state theater. Great for live music and smaller scale productions, the horse shoe shape seating puts you up close to the show and... More

saw the play "Boeing Boeing" there last year. not only was the play hilarious and the actors wonderful, but the setting of this theater is laid out nicely. it's my favorite stage theater so far, and i've visited quite a few. also, the rows are wide so you're not cramped, and my elderly father could easily get to his seat....

I went to see a Tribute to Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons last night! It was by far the best show I have seen at the Playhouse Downtown. The guys who performed last night were spot on. They had the look and sound of the band they were portraying! The guys had great chemistry with each other and good... More

This was our second visit to the Downtown Playhouse. Its a smaller, maybe 250 seat theater, compared the main-stage in Flatrock. This performance was a holiday performance title Motown Christmas. The singers were superb. Almost two hours of enjoyable holiday songs to put you into the spirit of the season. If you plan to be in downtown, check out the... More

My wife decided to step out of our box and go down to Hendersonville, NC for a little getaway this past weekend. While in Hendersonville we thought it would be nice to go to a show and decided upon the Motown Christmas. We were pleasantly surprised by the comfortable seating and the wonderful singers and show that was presented!! The... More

Flat rock playhouse designated The State Theater of North Carolina back in the 50s by the state is a quaint theater with a lot more to it than meets the eye. Something for everybody. I love the Christmas shows but have seen many events, Always a good time when at a show at the Playhouse! They wont disappoint!
