Established in 2004, StageOne is a 225 seat venue in the heart of downtown Fairfield, Connecticut. Originally built primarily for theatre productions, StageOne is consistently voted as the best place to hear live music in the entire region because of the quality of the sound, the intimacy of the space, and the caliber of the artists. There is literally not a bad seat in the house and there are few venues in the country where the fans can be so close to the world-renowned artists who grace the stage in over 200 concerts and productions a year. The artists love to perform here and frequently cite StageOne as their absolute favorite venue. This brings out the very best in them, which is reflected in the quality of their performances and enjoyment of their fans.

When touring musicians drop into this venue they know tis because they want to share THEIR life, their music, their essence....with us.....2 amazing stages that hold from one to only about 600 lucky souls....it really doesn't get any better than this!!!

We couldn't agree more! Many artists who have performed on StageOne have said it feels like they're playing some music to friends in their living room. It really is special for the artists, guests, as well as the staff. We love seeing shows here too! Thanks for the support. More

I have attended dozens of concerts and lately a few film presentations at FTC and the venues (Stage One for the most intimate setting and The Warehouse for acts attracting larger audiences) are both conveniently located across the street from the train station.

Great venue with two different experiences. Whether you are at StageOne or The Warehouse ,FTC is so intimate (and with great acoustics!) that you will never want to see your favorite band play anywhere else! Forget about those huge venues, this is the way to do it! The Warehouse has a great bar and upper area that you must check... More

My wife and I are members of FTC and we take in a lot of shows. "Stage One" is the best. Smaller, intimate, great acoustics and not a bad seat in the house. If you need to get a refill on your drink you have to step out into the bar/lobby area. The newer venue next door, "The Warehouse" is... More

The show at this venue was amazing. The courtyard effect is wonderful if you are sitting upstairs. You can see the musicians and the crowd.

FTC has fabulous shows in an intimate atmosphere. There is nothing better then sitting towards the back of a theater and feeling like you are right up front. It is super convenient if you are coming from a nearby town and like using Metro North. The theater is right next to the Fairfield stop.
