I have been a season ticket holder for many years. Most of the plays are very good but every once in awhile there is a clunker which keeps me from giving it five stars. Several of the plays have gone onto Broadway. Overall I think it is well worth the money

I should have done more research before purchasing the tickets to this show. The story line was a bit raunchy and just came up short. The actors were first rate and had great voices (really really wish they sang more)-but honestly the whole thing with the 'tongue' was disgusting--such a waste of talent.

The Paper Mill Playhouse brings in many excellent shows, and some go to Broadway, NYC. I have been a season subscriber for years and enjoy every show I see there. The customer support is excellent, parking is plentiful, and the Playhouse is easy to get to by rail, walking or car. Before the show enjoy a beverage on their creek... More

Paper Mill is a great local theater, many of their shows are Broadway caliber. In December, we enjoyed the show called "Body Guard".

The Bodyguard was amazing, and expecting good things from Playhouse the rest of the season! While the theatre itself could use sprucing up, the quality of the productions is top notch. Pricing is very reasonable.

My first visit here and I was totally impressed with the caliber of the production, particularly the staging ! I was drawn to "The Bodyguard" because I wanted to see Deborah Cox perform and also wanted to see how the movie translated into a live show. I was not disappointed . This production was definitely Broadway caliber. Tickets are not... More

A Bronx Tale previewed here, it was great to see it before it hits NYC, the ticket prices way more affordable, parking right there, lots of restaurants in town and adjacent to the theatre. Facilities clean, always something clever at the concession stand, plus you can bring your cocktails into the show. Great gift shop. Children's events are really adorable,... More

Professional performers but theater is a bit run down and very crowded. Tickets can be very expensive for decent seats.
