“Great Seasonal Theater”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

We've been to shows here two years in a row. This year we saw the recent production of "I Am a Camera", and last year "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof". We are veterans of New York theater as well as seasonal theater in Massachusetts, and I'm comfortable saying that the shows we saw at the W.H.A.T. were very well done, well acted, energetic, and just plain fun. This is a great way to spend an evening in the lower Cape. Seating is excellent, the theater is small and so there's no bad seat.

“"I Am a Camera" - interesting production”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

"I Am a Camera, for which Julie Harris won a Tony in 1951, is an interesting play about Berlin in 1930. Single set with a small cast of characters. The play is worth seeing because the actress playing the main character of Sally Bowles, Ruby Wolf, is riveting.

“Big city theater in the country”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

I've been to the WHAT theater for many productions and I've never been disappointed! Always cutting edge, make you think, make you laugh, type entertainment. Top notch equity actors hook you into the story and take you away. This should certainly be a destination theater now that the new Julie Harris stage on route 6 sets the tone for a NYC style theater house. Put it on your list if you love great theater and Cape Cod!

“A real theatre experience”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

Been a few times over the years including the current run of Cat on A Hot Tin Roof . Its such a small and intimate venue that you are so close to the actors and that really brings the performances to life. Worth a visit every time and a fantastic way to spend a few hours doing something different.
