“Great Thearter, Execlent Productions”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We had a great experience at the playhouse recently. Be advised that the balcony seats are kind of far from the stage and the balcony is on a steep incline. Other than that, professional staging, great acting, and well done performances!

“Good Theater on the Cape”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

A nice venue for some very good productions during the summer season, the Cape Playhouse has maintained its tradition of providing enticing entertainment. Set in a renovated barn, the plays are excellent with fine acting on professionally designed staging. "Freud's Last Session" (an off-Broadway production) was exceptional with a masterful handling of a two-man script that highights their major differences with regard to significant life issues. Nicely staged to bring the audience into Freud's office for the conversation. The setting is interesting but the seating is uncomfortable. Avoid the Loft seats in the balcony stretching down either side of the theater. They are cheaper but simply straight-backed chairs with cushions seated very close to each other. The Playhouse is pricey, particularly if you want a decent seat.

“Very entertaining "Odd Couple"”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Great regional theater with a very polished production. We really enjoyed their "Odd Couple". The theater building is a rustic gem that attracts a friendly crowd. Enjoy a glass of wine outside during intermission.

“A real holiday treat”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed 'The Odd Couple' here recently. A lovely atmosphere here, on a warm summer evening. Tickets a little expensive, but we had excellent seats in the second row, with a great view. Didn't need our cushions as the bench seats were padded and perfectly comfortable. Would definitely recommend a visit, if something in their program takes your fancy!
