“Entertaining Christmas show”
Reviewed 23 December 2012

Although we live local, my husband and I had never been here. I decided to take him to the Christmas show for his birthday. I have to say, the food was very good. We went in not knowing what to expect and were pleasantly surprised by the show and the food. Dessert was exceptional. A dessert buffet was set up in the lobby and had everything you could imagine on it. The show was entertaining, although a bit slow at times. The intermission was way too long at 30 minutes. The website indicated the Sat matinee was at 11:00. Please make sure you understand that the show doesn't start until 1:00 (which we didn't know) and they use those 2 hours to serve the food and clean up before they'll start the show. I don't recommend getting there any earlier than 1 hour prior to actual show time.

The talent of the players/singers/dancers is par excellence! The food is delicious and served. The dessert tables, including a special table for Diabetic/Dietetic, is beyond your wildest dreams. They have bread/cakes/struedels, etc. for purchase that are just wonderful w/samples so you can make a perfect choice. They have a bar w/specialty drinks or the old standbys. Their gift shop is fabulous...I always find something that is new and spectacular! This playhouse is well run and bathroom facilities are plentiful...even for the women!! I cannot imagine anyone having a better experience visiting a playhouse than the experience you will have at the Hunterdon Hills Playhouse..

“Best place for a wedding!!”
Reviewed 10 July 2012

We recently had our wedding at the Hunterdon Hills Playhouse, and everything about the entire experience was better than we could have ever imagined. We had to plan our wedding from 6 hours away, and Rene the event coordinator was amazing with helping us put the reception together. Every email we sent to her was answered quickly, and she would even re-arrange her schedule to meet with us on weekends when we happened to be in town. Everything about the reception was flawless. Our guests LOVED the cocktail hour in the atrium. Richard, the owner, who was present during our entire event to make sure everything went perfectly, started the cocktail hour early when some of our guests started arriving. Although we unfortunately missed most of the cocktail hour for photos, Richard made sure we got a tray of food, and it was delicious! We are pretty sure we saw some extra appetizers on there that we didn’t even order, and they were all fantastic! And the photos we took both outside by the lake and inside both the atrium and the grand room came out beautifully. Our cocktail hour started only about a half hour after the matinee play that day ended, but the turnaround was so fast and everything was ready to go before any of our guests arrived. The reception was better than we could have imagined. Everything was set up exactly as we had envisioned, and our cake turned out so cute! The dinner was delicious, and the cheesecake wedding cake was amazing! (The cake was so good that we ate all of our 1 year anniversary cake before out 3 week anniversary!). But, we think our guests most enjoyed the 5 hours of open bar with top shelf liquor. They even stocked several special drinks that we requested for no extra charge! At the end of the night, everyone was having such a good time that Richard let us keep the party going for a few extra songs. So many of our guests told us it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to, and we have Hunterdon Hills Playhouse to thank for that. Literally the only thing we wish we could differently if have our wedding here twice instead of once.

“Excellent entertainment and desserts to die for!”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

Every year for the past several years, my sisters and I take our mom to see the show and enjoy either the luncheon or dinner show. The food is good with several entree choices, but the shows we've seen (usually musical revues) are always excellent and we all just love the miniature dessert buffet. The theater troupe is composed of very talented singers and dancers, the costumes are numerous and the show just a delight. There energy on the stage filters down through the audience. We always leave with smiling faces after a wonderful afternoon of entertainment.
