Dining

Dinner and a show make a night at Starlight Theatre even more special – and far less hectic than racing home to make a meal or stopping for something quick on the way. We hope you’ll leave the dinner plans to us!


Summer Broadway Series

Starlight offers two choices for buffet-style dining before each Broadway show in the Applause Club.

Best of Broadway Buffet
A upscale menu and dining experience in the Applause Club’s indoor, air-conditioned spaces.

INSIDE the Applause Club, Starlight dinner guests relax in air-conditioned comfort at linen-covered tables, select from an expanded variety of chef-prepared food items at the buffet, and receive full table service. To complement your dinner, a complete wine list by the glass and bottle is offered. Soft drinks and dessert are included in the dinner price. Gratuity is not included.

Table service is provided for soft drink refills and adult beverage purchases. Soft drinks and dessert are included in the dinner price. Gratuity is not included.
