I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Ballet Memphis perform at Playhouse on the Square. I sat in a few different seats over several shows and there is not a bad seat in the house! Downside -- parking was challenging and they had recently and a regular security person would be a good idea.

My cousin had tickets and took me to see Momma Mia and I was amazed at the quality of the actors; everyone of them had a strong and musical voice. The had a live orchestra and we all ended up standing and dancing at the end of the show. What a great night!

This theatre is a real jewel! In the last four to five years, I have seen the best musicals at this theatre! This theatre has a permanent acting company, and they also have an internship for aspiring actors. Most of the shows rival Broadway (and I have seen my share of Broadway). For a very entertaining evening, check out the... More

Have been here multiple times to get my theatre fix and I have enjoyed every performance. These actors are really spectacular. The performance space has a lot of history.

This regional theater has big talent! Playhouse is the newest, and largest, of the 3-theater group. All plays I have been to have been great. The best deal is to buy a season package. You can use the tickets for whatever plays you want and price comes out to be around $16/ticket. Get a glass of wine during before taking... More

This is my favorite place to see regional shows in Memphis. The productions are always top-notch and the theatre is beautiful. If you've never seen a production here you are missing out!

This review is of the relatively new Playhouse on the Square, built in 2010, not the older version that some reviewers are confused about. Its not a quaint theatre; its a super modern theater with excellent acoustics and sight lines, hosting some amazing productions. Tourist you must pay attention, because there are some fantastic shows here and the prices for... More

Great place to see theater, not a bad seat in the house. Seating is very comfortable and clean. With several theaters in the area, this is my choice.
