Outstanding theater and many of the shows the last 2 seasons have premiered at The Paper Mill and gone straight to Broadway. You will get the NY experience without the steep ticket prices.

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

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.

There is no dress code. Feel free to wear whatever you want. Some people wear jeans and sneakers, others a little dressier. Few people wear suits and fancy dresses.

People tend to go out to eat before so they dress in more business casual. Occasionally you'll find someone in jeans,but the crowd is older and a little more sophisticated so business casual is best
