As with most theater, experience can be mixed. Not comfortable in the lobby waiting to go in, too crowded and no convenient seating. Prices of tickets are high for a regional theater and if you need to park it is not wonderful having to pay...More

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

I greatly underestimated this theater! I cannot begin to tell you how impressed I was with both the adult and child actors in this performance. I never thought anyone could hold a torch to the beloved Julia Andrews in this role...boy, was I wrong! She...More

This was my first time to the Paper Mill Playhouse, though my parents used to go there regularly 25 years ago. It has been around for a long time and has a history of excellent productions and this season's "Mary Poppins" was no exception. Acting,...More

The callus disrespect of the Paper Mill to sell a set of subscription seats out from under a loyal couple who has supported The Playhouse as patrons & contributors since the 1960's is beyond belief. Though The Theater cites an April "expiration" on subscription renewal...More
