We’re warming up the Robards Theatre with some laughs!  

The Playhouse is thrilled to partner with the fine folks at the Connecticut Comedy Festival to bring a week of comedy to the Playhouse, part of their third annual festival being held across the state. After a year sheltering at home, there is no better way to throw open the doors to the Robards Theatre than to bathe it in some good side-splitting laughter. Come to one show or buy a package pass and catch all the funny you can handle!
