I attended the recent performance of Treasure Island, at the Fulton Theatre. As usual the artistic director did an excellent job of providing first rate talent to a local venue. The Fulton has been steadily improving the variety shows and bringing in talented actors to...More

I've seen several seasons of shows here at the Fulton (main-stage and Groff). The theater is small enough that most seats (orchestra, mezzanine and gallery) are decent. The music and performers have been impressively good. Some exceptional. The Groff series offers a variety of performances...More

I've always been happy with the quality of the shows performed here and would recommended the Fulton to everyone/anyone. Lots of history here! It's a 3-star and not a 5-star because, more than once, I've reserved seats up in the gallery (cheaper and I like...More

Although we've visited this wonderful theater several times, this is the first time I sat down to review it. We saw The Hunchback of Notre Dame and the caliber of production rivals anything I've seen on Broadway (and we live in New York!) the sets...More
