The Barter never disappoints. The interior of the theater is lovely. It is like stepping back in time. The acting is very professional and every play well done. We go several times a year. Recently saw Wizard of Oz--excellent! My favorites were Les Miserables and Beauty and the Beast. After the play visit Bob's at the Barter cafe.

A friend and I saw Man of La Mancha in the spring and loved the theater and the production! This theater is steeped in tradition and a lovely place to view a play!!

We have been going to Barter Theater for a few years and go several times a year. Every play we see is top notch....great acting, awesome sets, impressive costumes and effects, and so creative! It is always a great experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone in the area.

We saw "Welcome Back To Ivy Gap" it was a really good play. The theater itself was a historical attraction on it's own. The town of Abington was a joy to walk around in. We would recommend going when you get a chance.

We went to the the Wizard of Oz. It was amazing!!! I Would not recommend for small children due to the length of the play. The play took over 2 hours and they gave a 18 min intermission.
