My wife and I were in town and wanted to see a show. We saw Beauty and the Beast, a Tinderella story. The theater is cozy, with no bad seats-we were in the last elevated row. They offer drinks and snacks, and the atmosphere is...More

Comedy based on life experiences we can all relate to or often times current events. Cast is great and engaging. If you're easily offended, can't take a joke or handle political satire, you should probably go watch a Disney movie instead. They usually run a...More

The first time at BNW was 41 years ago on our honeymoon. This year's Christmas show was non-stop laughter except for a couple of well timed social statements. It was obvious the cast enjoyed the evening as well.

Loved the show we saw at the Brave New Workshop Comedy Theater. "Wreck the Halls" performers were quick witted and funny. Plan to return for another dose of comedic relief!
