There are 3 theaters at the Playhouse on the UCSD campus. My personal favorite is the newest black box theater - The Potiker. Each season promises quality performances - something for everyone!

Love theater??? Get tickets!! First rate theater company that sends MANY shows to Broadway. Rarely any deals, but can save money on matinees. Worth every penny.

I have been a season ticket holder at the La Jolla Playhouse for years. I love their innovation and many of their productions have landed on Broadway. Jersey Boys, Tommy, How to Succeed in Business- are just a few that have been favorite musicals that were debuted at LPJ. Some of the best productions ever included, I am my Own... More

The night we attended a new play " Chasing a song" was in production. The quality was amazing, the music and acting, for the most part, superb. After the performance, there was an audience discussion- only the third night that has occurred as the play was being further developed. Great intimate environment for theatre going.

Jersey Boys started in this playhouse. They generally have very high quality productions, in a pretty small playhouse. Check out their last-minute deals or other options for a discount.

There are 3 different theater venues at the Playhouse so they are able to put on a very diversified program, from works in progress to the many shows that have started in La Jolla and gone on to Broadways like Jersey Boys.

Awesome little theatre with a reputation that is second to none. Great show and wonderful venue. We had some time beforehand to explore the University grounds, nice for a little jaunt before the show.

Wow, what a terrific production! The playwright did a wonderful job with describing universal experiences - I could imagine a similar conversation in families of almost any culture where more conservative generations struggle with younger, less conservative views. The cast was great, and the production is polished. My wife was concerned by our seats, which were in one of the... More

This play has a thought provoking story line and is an excellent production! We had seats in the middle of the third row of the side stage. We could see and hear everything, even at the times one Actor had their back to the side audience. It made you feel like you were in the living room observing the family... More
