We just saw Mary Poppins and the production was excellent. Broadway caliber. Amazing how this theatre can have a fantastic cast with all of the Broadway bells and whistles for a reasonable price. Audience comprises all ages. The Paper Mill has a variety of plays...More

I just saw Mary Poppins here and the production was wonderful. The venue is deserving of the 2016 Tony for regional theater. I've seen shows that were eventually headed to Broadway here. It's very comfortable and you don't have to go into the city. The...More

Upon entering and taking our seats, my husband remarked "wow- I had no idea there was basically a Broadway Theater right here." It's a well-run venue, has a dynamic and interesting set of shows (we've been going for 2 seasons now, not to everything), and...More

The venue is very nice, however, recently the shows have not been to my taste. This can just be an anomaly with me, but even with the new season being advertised, there is nothing that appeals to me in the works.

Just saw Million Dollar Quartet. Show was excellent. Lots of great music and top notch performances. Always a great show. Highly recommend.

Grab dinner before, see a great show and be home before 11 without ever crossing a bridge! Just saw Million Dollar Quartet. Fabulous. Parking at playhouse or down the road at public parking.

We have been subscribers for over 30 years and you can't beat the quality of the performances. Getting there is easy, we park for free on the street, and best of all no tolls!

What is proper attire to a Saturday night show? I read the website said semi casual but can you be more specific?( jeans, no jeans, dresses for women or shirt/tie for men, etc)
