We took the tour of Sunnylands---where the Annenberg Theatre is located. This is a tour not to miss. It is an impressive home featuring a wonderful collection of art work. Worth the money and time!

They updated it several years ago, keeping the Orange color Of the seats. (Not my preference of color). You get quality performances. Pricing tends to be almost on par to the McCallum Theatre in Palm Desert so many attractions to go to in our desert. Check all venues even the shows at the various casinos to compare

Inside the Art Museum and a lovely comfortable venue but Palm Springs cannot draw top drawer talent unless they are "over the hill" or has beens.

Small theatre, maybe 3,000 max. Extremely varied performers. Check online close to the show date: we got tix in the 3rd row for Lord of the Dance; probably a patron that released their seats. The balcony is not good for shows like the B-52's because gays dance facing backwards.

Saw two plays here and enjoyed them both immensely. Acting/directing/sets were excellent - very lovely venue and professional all around.

This movie on the hour and half hour is very well done. Good sound and covers a huge amount in about 20 minutes. Comfortable little theatre.

The space itself is very nice, not too big and not too small so you can really see the performer. The problem I had is with the seats. They must be in a conspiracy with the airlines. I am a small person (5' 6" and 140lbs) so this is not an obese problem. The problem is long, long rows with... More

This play was very cleverly done. The four actors did a great job of playing numerous roles with different costume changes, accents, etc. We sat in the "cheap seats", which are the back two rows of the theater, but still saw and heard everything well. It's not necessary to be familiar with Hitchcock's work to enjoy this play, but if... More
