The Ridgefield Playhouse is outstanding in the way it’s hosted world-famous music acts like Natalie Cole and staged kid-friendly productions like ‘Peter and the Wolf’, but it truly sets itself apart in staging beloved operas like Verdi’s ‘Don Carlo’ and Wagner’s ‘Ring’ cycle. Well worth the beauteous 30-minute drive from the Inn.
Westport Country Playhouse
The Westport Country Playhouse is the home of a state-of-the-art 578-seat theatre devoted to the year-round production of contemporary and classic plays, with the upcoming season featuring works by Tennessee Williams and William Shakespeare, among others. The recent multi-million dollar renovation of its iconic ‘red barn’ was a passion of the late Paul Newman.
