“Rocky Horror Picture Show Was Great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013

We had a really wonderful night here for the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Neither of us had seen it, and we were thrilled. The theater is nice, but only has one bathroom outside and one in the back of the theater. Also, we parked far away because we had dinner at Hearth beforehand, but parking at the theater looked like bad idea.

“Great Little Playhouse”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

You wouldn't think a small place like New Hope would have a playhouse, much less a very good one, but there is! This is definitely worth checking out. The shows are reasonably priced, and there are plenty of other restaurant choices around for before and after the show.

“The Bucks County Playhouse: Reborn, Rennovated & Revitalized”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

“Each night, when I go to sleep, I die. And the next morning, when I wake up, I am reborn.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

I have seen shows in the historic Bucks County Playhouse dating back to the 1970's. It was sad to see this historic landmark shut down. But like the bird of Phoenix, it rose from the ashes last year with new owners who dedicated themselves to once again make this theater a 'must see, must do' attraction in New Hope. It is fully renovated and better than ever. Great shows, wonderful talent, live music - it is a place to be embraced for all its charm and entertainment value. With the 'new' Bucks County Playhouse, I can skip the Broadway scene and visit New Hope, soak in all of its ambiance, shop, visit with the extraordinarily talented local artists, soak up the many historical attractions New Hope has to offer. And, least we forget, you have ventured into the equivalent of a gastronomical playground in New Hope and Lambertville with everything ranging from a chic coffee shop or specialty ice cream parlor to four & five star restaurants and everything in between. Welcome back and, as they say in the theater, "break a leg!"

“Pleasant Surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

A wonderful alternative to going to a large city venue to enjoy a live show and at a fraction of the cost. The playhouse is small and comfortable, and the location in New Hope offers a number of restaurants and local shopping within walking distance of the playhouse.
