The Gary The Olivia Theater at The Abbey of Regina Laudis

273 Flanders Rd., Bethlehem, CT

203- 273-5669. The Gary-The Olivia Theater at the Abbey of Regina Laudis is a place where professional and amateur alike come to perform in a unique and transforming environment. Built in 1982 through the generous support of actress Patricia Neal, this open-air theater, surrounded by the lush Connecticut countryside seats approximately 300 people. "There’s a heavenly quality about The Gary-The Olivia Theatre. This roofed outdoor summer theater never fails to draw audiences from far and wide. Built in 1982 on the grounds of the abbey for the Benedictine nuns, it is always a surprise to find the contemporary theater next to a barn that houses an 18th century crèche that belonged to the King of Sardinia in 1720." Joanne Greco Rochman - columnist, critic, feature storywriter and English professor.
