ELMSFORD, NY - The Westchester Broadway Theatre in Elmsford strives to bring high-quality entertainment to the county with the added benefit of providing a luxurious place to dine, too.
Since opening in 1974, it continues to be a one-of-a-kind institution in New York State, offering musical dinner theater of Broadway revivals year-round.
"We provide fine dining and quality entertainment at affordable prices," said Pia Haas, the director of press and public relations. "That's what we do here, and the productions are always excellent."
When patrons attend a show, they can choose between entrees like prime rib, chicken, fish, eggplant and ravioli. Appetizers, salad, wine, dessert and a full bar are also included.
Performing roughly six shows each year, the company's audiences are generally older crowds of over 40 or families with younger children. Attempting to bring in a younger crowd, they offer student rush tickets for the performances.
In 1991, the Westchester Broadway Theatre moved to their current location. The new building provided more space on stage and in the seating area, which now accommodates around 500 people.
Throughout the years, their acoustic and lighting departments have adapted to the changes in technology, giving them the opportunity to produce better shows each year.
Private viewing boxes are available for a higher price, where parties can dine behind a closed curtain and are privy to a private waiter and bathroom.
"You're getting a show and a full dinner, and you don't have to worry about driving to the city and parking," said Haas. "It's a good deal here."
Tickets are regularly $75 per adult. In addition, there are discounts for senior groups, school groups and children.
