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

From the intimate theater houses in downtown villages, 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.
