Went for Jazz and Fell in Love with the Theater
Sep 01, 2014 by: Joe T from Charlotte, North Carolina
We attended the Montey Alexander Jazz Festival and fell in love with the theatre. It is an intimate venue with great sightlines and acoustics. We sat in the balcony for a Saturday afternoon tribute to Dave Brubeck and could hear every note perfectly. Saturday night we were on the main floor and it was like being in a cozy jazz club.
Lovely old historic theater

The theater itself is rich with history, everyone from John Wayne, to jazz and folk greats (Joan Bayez etc) have played here. Its a quirky little theater lovingly restored in downtown Easton - attached to a restaurant that though we didn't eat there looked very nice indeed. Only cautions is that it is run by volunteers so a bit of patience can be required collecting tickets and being shown to seats. Also in my opinion a seat downstairs in the stalls is preferable to a seat (or quasi box) in the balcony as views can be restricted upstairs.

The theater was the hub for July's Plein Air festival for most of the week. Charming place and people.

My husband and I decided not to do a boating trip while away for our anniversary and instead decided to see "Kiss of the Spiderwoman" at the Avalon Theatre in Easton. We loved the show. The actors were phenominal. For a local group, this play was beyond excellent and was more than worth the $25 tickets. Yes, we did this in part because of the weather forecast not being ideal for a boat cruise, but were were more than pleased with our decision to see the play. The theatre is very nice and comfortable. If and when we visit Easton again, we'll be seeing another show.
Chamber music festival
Jun 06, 2014 by: Joan A from Corpus Christi, Texas
I went to Easton specifically to attend the Chesapeake Bay Chamber Music Festival. Various churches and the Avalon Theatre are among the concert sites. I heard two concerts at Trinity Episcopal Church and attended rehearsals at the Avalon Theatre. I loved seeing the theatre with pictures lining the walls of the lobby area and found the acoustics to be very good for the chamber music players. It's a rather quaint place befitting the historic character of this part of Easton. I hope the Chamber Music Festival may be added as a feature to review as it is an inspiring program that brings renowned classical musicians to Easton annually.
