The Performing Arts
Thanks to the close proximity to New York City and some of the world's greatest talent, the Poconos has found itself the lucky recipient of both talent spillover and a demanding public.
Tucked away here and there throughout the Poconos, there are playhouses and revival theaters that offer a whole host of productions -many familiar, and others either local or obscure.
Use the listings below to find specific locations and theaters as well as a sampling of the best upcoming and current works.
