McCarter Theatre Center reviews
A beautiful theater where one can see the best variety of talent like Nutcracker, Baryshinikov, Ben Vereen, and Madame Butterfly. more »
Didn’t particularly like the show we saw (Isaac Mizrachi) which was pretty old school and boring, but the theater itself is lovely with good seating and acoustics. Hard to find parking nearby, so... more »
This is one of my favorite places to see theatre in the country. They do poignant, timely pieces that reflect the times. Both spaces are beautiful and comfortable. I've seen plays in the Berlind and large scale productions like "A Christmas Carol" in the Matthews. My whole family attended a sensory friendly performance of "A Christmas Carol" in December and it was a really great experience. So glad theatres like McCarter are making the arts accessible to everyone!
Very cool theater on Princeton's campus. Free parking garage in the evening a few blocks away. The theater is very intimate with very good sound. The crowd was very quiet and respectful (except of course for the one idiot that yells something when it's very quiet). There's a small limited bar inside to get a quick drink and the restrooms were modern and clean. I will definitely go here again.
