Shubert Theater

What a gem for New Haven! This historic theater (100 years and counting) retains much of its charming interior, from the private boxes and gigantic columns flanking the stage, to the beautiful lobby.

Aunty, Etta and I saw a Saturday matineé of White Christmas: our holiday gift from AJ. There was no traffic to speak of, other than the I-95 bridge that’s been under construction for the past 50 years or so… (exaggeration, maybe!)

There was event parking in the garage next door for a super reasonable $8. We found the ushers warm and inviting, and seats to be comfy with a good view of the stage and great sound. The show, Irving Berlin’s White Christmas, started on time, the production (and casting!) exceeded my expectations.

It was in all ways comparable to a Broadway show. A look back at the amazing performers (Julie Andrews, Sidney Poitier, etc) who have graced the Shubert stage confirms that it is truly a legendary theater!
