The Players Club Of Swarthmore Reviews & Ratings
I've seen a fair amount of community theater in my day, most of it excruciatingly painful to sit through. This production of Shakespeare in Hollywood, however, was a sheer delight. The direction was brisk, and the actors' comedic timing was spot-on. And the woman who played Puck (Jennifer Greenfield) brought levels of nuance to the role that I have never seen before.
First time we were there. My Granddaughter and I loved it. We are going again soon.
Amazing! Its community theater, so they need YOU. Help support the arts. They do great shows. They have wonderful people. You can't go wrong.
The Players Club of Swarthmore is easily accessible by car and has plenty of free, off street parking. There are nearby restaurants if you wish to partake in a pre-show meal. The theater is a moderate size that provides an intimate theater experience for the patrons. My wife and I went to see "Guys and Dolls" at the Players Club and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We enjoyed it so much the 1st show, we came back to see it a 2nd time. I have always enjoyed live theater and have seen some great shows in New York and Philadelphia. As compared to these two cities, I was very impressed at the talent level of the performers in this show. I am continuously amazed at the musical talent possessed by so many individuals. I have to wonder what I was doing when musical talent was being distributed. The musicians were great and all of the show tunes were performed at a very high level. The production, staging and choreography were all done well. What more can you be looking to receive for such a low ticket price? I thought it was interesting to see all of the performers helping out in changing scenery on stage and some performers playing multiple roles. I suppose that in a small theater, everybody has to multitask and they did it very well. If you are looking for a night out to enjoy the arts, give the Players Club of Swarthmore an opportunity to fill that need. I believe you will be glad you did, without having to go to New York or Philadelphia. It doesn't get any better than that!
Excellent theater company. Lots of great shows!
