This playhouse is really nice. It's not huge, but that is what makes it nice. There is really not a bad seat in the house. The people working there are friendly and helpful. Overall, a very good experience.

I've never seen a show at the La Jolla Playhouse that I didn't love. A great chance to catch new musicals and plays being workshopped before they move on to Broadway :)

The local productions at LJ Playhouse have gone on to Broadway and won numerous awards, including Tony Awards. Since this is San Diego, dress can be anything from Black Tie to Levi's and t-shirts, and everyone will be comfortable.

My wife and I wanted a low key night. On a whim, we made choice to see Kingdom City at the LJP and what an enjoyable evening! The theatre is beautiful in a beautiful place, easy access as well. Inside the theatre is a small, homey feel yet you feel that there is big theatre with all the lighting and... More

I am a fan so I am may be biased. I've been a subscriber since we moved to San Diego about 8 years ago. I have had a mixed of jaw droppingly good plays, musicals and have never been disappointed with the performances. A good number of shows go to Broadway and I am glad that they still include a...

The intimate setting makes seeing any play there wonderful. We went on the spurr of the moment and we are planning on seeing two different plays later this fall. The area is great for walking after the play and that makes for a great date

Went to the La Jolla Playhouse for the first time the other night, saw the play the Orphan of Zhao. The Playhouse itself is easy to get to and the parking is very affordable, only $2.00 for the entire night. There isn't a bad seat in the theater. The only drawback I had was that we were not notified that... More
