Long Wharf Theatre, New Haven

4.6
#1 of 8 in Nightlife in New Haven
Named for the Long Wharf port along New Haven Harbor, the theatre was built in a vacant warehouse space in a busy food terminal, with its Mainstage originally stocked with seats borrowed from a retired movie house.

Under the watch of Arvin Brown and Edgar Rosenblum for over 30 years, Long Wharf Theatre established itself as an important force in the regional theatre movement.

Under the current leadership of Artistic Director Gordon Edelstein and Managing Director Joshua Borenstein, Long Wharf Theatre continues to be a leader in American theatre, producing fresh and imaginative revivals of classics and modern plays, rediscoveries of neglected works and a variety of world and American premieres.

  • Amazing shows! This place is always full of talented actors and kind ushers. A great place to take friends/family for live theater.
  • This is a great place to see a play! They offer two different stages, with a bar area in both. Light snacks are also available. Plenty of parking, and it is located adjacent to I95. Very courteous staff, and all seats offer an excellent view of the stage. Each season offers a good variety of performances.
