The Heart of the Community
The historic Shubert Theater is a not-for profit arts, education, and community institution serving the people of Connecticut and in particular the City of New Haven. As a public resource, the Shubert presents a wide array of programs to a diverse community. Its programming includes performers representing many cultures, nationalities and varieties of artistic expression. The Shubert also maintains comprehensive education and community outreach programs, from a student series in the theater to master classes and lecture demonstrations in schools and community centers. The Shubert’s Night At A Performance (S.N.A.P.) program makes it possible for families who might not otherwise be able to attend the theater, to come at no cost to them.
Love it here! They have great shows, friendly staff, and it’s affordable. It’s so nice to enjoy professional theatre locally, in a beautiful venue! Parking is super convenient, right next door and the concessions are reasonable. Why go to NY to see a show when you can get the same experience with better seats right here in CT? The Shubert makes theatre accessible!
Been to two shows here this year. Sat in the nose bleed section for one and orchestra for second. I wouldn’t suggest the nose bleeds, not a pleasant experience but the orchestra seats were awesome. Parking is typical city parking, limited. The garage right next door is inexpensive but takes so long to get out of post show. I’d suggest parking elsewhere and enjoying the city.
We went to see rudolph the red nose reindeer, my daughter loved it. The seats were in the balcony. But for the price and seat were good enough. Staff were really attentive
Great little theater. I can't imagine there is a bad seat in the house. Sound was a little sharp, but it could have been how the show we saw was mixed. Concessions we're expensive, but not unexpected.
Great venue. Wonderful shows. No bad seats. Amazing ushers, etc. elevators to higher levels. Balcony seats: great views but more of a challenge to get to— not as scary as it looks! Bathroom on floor below.
