  • Theater Notes by Sidney B. Simon

    Kristen Coury, Producing Artistic Director, took this play under her wing with incredible dedication. Touches of her miraculous hand reached each performer who clearly sent messages that there was no other play they wanted to be in. This was dialogue an actor believes in. It matters. It changes lives. It is, in my mind, what theater is all about. This production is definitely in my “must see” category. It will be a sell out.


    The Price: It matters. It changes lives.

  • BWW Review: THE PRICE at Gulfshore Playhouse

    Gulfshore Playhouse never fails to thoroughly impress me with the attention to detail in their productions. THE PRICE involves many, many props, and they all seemed to have a purpose in bringing the show to life. The set itself was beautiful, and I absolutely felt like I was peering into an old attic that held many memories for these two brothers. Kristen Martino, the scenic designer of THE PRICE, did an excellent job with this production. (more…)

  • Cast of Gulfshore Playhouse ‘Leading Ladies’ elevates farce

    In Shakespeare’s time, men would play both the male and female roles.

    In Ken Ludwig’s “Leading Ladies,” a pair of Shakespearean actors are once again pretending to be women — but they do so in attempts to swindle a dying woman out of her money by claiming to be her long-lost nieces.


  • BWW Review: LEADING LADIES at Gulfshore Playhouse is Wonderfully Witty!

    LEADING LADIES at Gulfshore Playhouse is truly one of the most hilarious, witty, and well-performed plays I have ever seen. It is Gulfshore Playhouse’s first production post-Hurricane Irma, and I have to say, they are starting out incredibly strong, after what I am sure was a tough recovery. (more…)

  • A stimulating evening diversion from the sun and sand. Visitors to Naples will find that the Gulfshore Playhouse offers a stimulating diversion from the sun and the sand at night. This company hires professional actors and every performance that I have seen here has been excellent. My only desire is that the seating would be made more comfortable. It is bearable for the quality.
