this play house has excellent seats throughout the theater. The plays are excellent, often with an all-star cast i.e. the names that are usually in the big lights. There is a bar with wine and beverages before the show. A nice location with parking nearby.

Each new season is better than a treasure chest at this charming little theater in Laguna Beach. Small, yet very comfortable and friendly. Even though you are surrounded by an audience mostly attired in Giorgio Armani, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel and Gucci, you always feel welcomed by these theater-loving locals. What this enchanting quaint playhouse lacks in lobby size... More

We saw The Year of Magical Thinking starring the wonderful Linda Purl with a seminal and electifying performance about the power of the human spirit to overcome adversity and loss. Her performance is not to be missed.

The play comes with a very strong narrative by the novelist Joan Didion, of memories, events, emotional waverings (should she and her daughter leave her husband or... More

Every seat is good seat for viewing and... More

Excellent 90 minute show with the best of Motown music. Truly not a bad seat in the house. Loved the show but venue was very uncomfortable temperature wise as A/C not on or working.

Had the opportunity to see Buddy Holly Story last night and it was one of the most fun and energetic performances I have ever seen. The performers are not just actors but top notch musicians and singers. The acoustics in this intimate theater are outstanding and the performance had the theater rock n' rolling. Highly recommend you see this Playhouse... More

We happened to get tickets for opening night of the Buddy Holly story. The Rock and Roll draws you in to the story, but the quality of the acting and production really made it memorable.
