Westport Country Playhouse
High quality live theater performances have been enjoyed by the community of Westport, CT and traveling theatergoers since 1931 when Lawrence Langer, a New York producer and his wife Armina Marshall Langer, founded the Westport Country Playhouse. It’s hard to believe that this nationally recognized, non-profit theater was originally built in 1835 as a tannery or that it also became a steam powered cider mill. The Playhouse has showcased many gifted actors such as Earl Jones, Gene Wilder, Paul Newman, Bernadette Peters and Joanne Woodward. Woodward, a well-known actress, wife of Paul Newman and artistic director of the Westport Country Playhouse, helped to initiate the multimillion dollar renovation completed in 2005.
