As season subscribers for years, we regularly enjoy plays at this small jewel box of a theater. The current production is perfect for the holidays. Felder sings, plays the piano, and tells the very moving story of the great composer who wrote White Christmas, God Bless America, Always, There's No Business Like Show Business, and many, many more songs.

The Geffen is one of my most favorite theaters. It's small and intimate and always has productions that are well worth (for us) the long drive from Laguna Beach. It usually takes 1 1/12 hours to get there during the week--and sometimes even longer- so my only complaint is that it's not close by. Otherwise, I'd be a season ticket... More

We live in LA and always see a few shows a year at the Geffen. Really pleasant place to see a performance. It's not a big theatre, so there really aren't any bad seats.There's a very comfortable patio to relax on beforehand, and Westwood's an easy place to walk around for a meal before or after. Also they do a... More

We saw Slowgirl here last week-end. We haven't been in many years and this is a great theatre experience. William Peterson, (Gil Grissom, CSI) was amazing and the theatre is so intimate that you really get to appreciate his amazing persona. Also, if you arrive 30 minutes before the show, tickets are half price. Students $10 w/id. Highly recommend...and Westwood... More

I have seen some interesting shows here.It still suffers from the LA curse, it's supposed to be about the show not the performers.

Luscious wisteria draped over the arched entrance, ivy clinging on garden walls, and a tiled fountain in the courtyard -- refreshing and delightful! It looks and feels more like the main house of a hacienda. There was quite a crowd mingling about sipping wine. It fells like a garden party! 4.25.13 - We saw a great production of American Buffalo... More

I love going to this theatre, it is right in the center of Westwood with many options for dinner and drinks. We saw the magic show in the small theatre and it was so much fun. The court yard is gorgeous , I will never hesitate to recommend this place to anybody.

Very cool and eclectic theater across the street from UCLA - nice layout, seats were comfortable and acoustics great - we saw The Gift which was an excellent play. We would come here to see a play in the area!
