  • Lady Day at Emerson's Bar. Attended this in July. Very Disappointed. I have been a summer attendee for the past 7 years. This show was a huge disappointment.  more »
  • I was in for a family wedding and decided to go, by myself, no one else wanted to go, to see a play as I had always heard about it and how famous actors and actresses had gotten their start there...  more »
  • Been to every show this season. Great season with South Pacific being the highlight for me. Definitely an experience everyone should try. The grounds are beautiful and the structure itself is amazing. Pre-show sitting with friends at the gazebo with a glass of wine watching the sun set-priceless!
  • Historic playhouse in Dennis. Quality of performance and acoustics always above average. Seating in balcony was wooden benches which were uncomfortable even with cushions, but you can't have everything. Plenty of free parking. Great summer night 'go to' entertainment.
