Perhaps its the influence of the many Hollywood actors, directors, singers and performers who call Long Island home, or perhaps the close proximity to New York City’s Broadway and film scene, but Long Island theater is passionate about performing both live performances.

From intimate theater house movie screenings in downtown villages to grand performance halls, including professional theater at Gateway Playhouse, John Engeman Theater and Baystreet along with other community theaters, to the major performance centers such as the Tilles Center, Staller Center and Jones Beach Theater, enjoy the pleasant drama of a trip to Long Island.
