“Superb theater….put it on your list!: Gulfshore Playhouse offers consistently superb theater–whether it be a comedy or a drama. The productions are often thought-provoking and the performances are first class. Artistic Director Kristen Coury’s casting is always right-on with Equity actors’ performances taking this playhouse’s productions to the next level. Enjoy a pleasant afternoon matinee or evening performance; call ahead for reservations as tickets go quickly. The word is out about Gulfshore Playhouse!”
Come & enjoy being entertained by great performers in professional productions at the comfortable & intimate Gulfshore Playhouse. You need to sit & see it to believe it!
The staging, the directing, the creativity, the fabulous choices in plays to perform, and the galactic acting ( better than stellar 😀 ) make the evenings we spend there inspiring, amusing, fabulously entertaining learning experiences. We lose the outside world for those few hours we spend there, and that precious respite exploring the story world on the stage is magical.
The quality and variety of the shows selected and the professional acting and directing is on par with anything I have seen in Chicago, New York and London.
[Gulfshore Playhouse] provides the best professional theater experience in SW Florida. And as a New Yorker who has seen hundreds of Broadway and Off Broadway productions over a lifetime, I say this with total confidence.
I love Gulfshore Playhouse because it provides Broadway level entertainment in the heart of Naples.The plays are always well-suited to our population. Please don’t let Broadway steal you away from us!
“Fabulous Theater in a Resort Town: Live theater at this venue is so good, so professional, so surprising, that it’s like being at an Off Broadway play in NYC. Kristen Coury, Founder and Producing Artistic Director, auditions professional, Actors Equity talent, often from New York, to cast in her productions. If you care for live theater, make sure to take in a play at Gulfshore Playhouse.”
“Superb theatre at Gulfshore Playhouse This small theatre has consistently excellent productions. All performances feature Actors Equity actors who are top of their game. The scenery designs are always amazing. If you are in Naples during season, check out a production. You won’t be disappointed. We have seen every play for the past three years and every one was a quality production. Reasonable prices as well.”
I’ve not been disappointed with any production in the many years of being a subscriber.
I love Gulfshore Playhouse because of the incredibly thought provoking selections, and their ability to execute the plays at high standards of artistic excellence.
I love Gulfshore Playhouse because of the highly professional productions, interesting show selection, and superb actors. The quality is as good as you would get in my hometown of Boston. What a gift to have this theater available to us in Naples – it’s a gem!!
it is local entertainment of the same quality as Broadway. We can drive 20 minutes from our Naples home, have dinner in local wonderful restaurants and then experience Broadway quality performances and even have the opportunity of chatting with the actors and actresses.
