Trivia & History

The Coachlight Dinner Theatre in East Windsor, Connecticut opened its doors in September 1972. This 632 seat dinner theater-in-the-round featured many well known personalities of the day during its first season of productions, including Pat Carroll, Stubby Kaye and Davey Jones. A playbill from their fifth season claims that the Coachlight Dinner Theatre had become known as the Broadway of dinner theaters. Their production of Play It Again, Sam starring Jack Gilford has been preserved on video and is now in the video archives of the New York Public Library. Due to an unfortunate combination of circumstances the Coachlight Dinner Theatre was forced to close its doors early in 1992. The property was eventually auctioned off and today all that remains is a coachlight attached to the remnant of an old electronic sign.

The building was demolished in 1997.
