Wonderful place for dinner date night with friends. We did the combination Cabaret show. The diner was very tasty and portions are generous and seconds were available if you want more. The Cabaret show was beautiful performance and live music accompanied the musicians. The music selection was a hit with the crowd. The musical we then saw was “Kiss Me Kate “ This was an outstanding performance by the actors who sang beautifully and the energy was wonderful. We throughly enjoyed the performance and the evening. Prices are reasonable and drinks (alcohol) are available too. We will return.

2018 has brought one of the most successful seasons ever to the Playhouse. Producer Franklin Trapp has cast an excellent company of resident actors along with Broadway actors in the leads for a season that has something for everyone. The children's theater production of "Seussical the Musical" is one of the best things I have ever seen at the Playhouse- it's an extra delight. And the gardens are just gorgeous! Don't miss seeing something at this Catskills jewel- the oldest summer stock theater in New York State.

I love going there every year. They always have a great selection of plays to see for adults and children. Highly recommended for anyone who loves theater but doesn't want to go to the city. The staff is friendly and always make you feel like you are home.
