Where Days End In Curtain Calls and Encores

In New Haven, we pack big city entertainment into quaint city charm. Home to New England’s most unique music venues, from renovated firehouses to restored historic theaters, New Haven provides stages to traveling mega talent and local rising stars alike. Live theater blooms on the stage of the Shubert and Long Wharf Theaters. Public art sprawls across Downtown’s muraled walls and in the studios of local artists. Whether you’re looking for grunge rock with a cold beer, or Pulitzer Prize winning theatrical performance, you’ll find it here. Live entertainment in New Haven is a communal experience, where locals and visitors come together over a melody, a monologue, or a mic drop.
