Interesting seating arrangement put the audience right in the performance. We were able to see a limited performance which was entertaining, funny, theatrical and a nice operetta. The orchestra plays on stage as there is no orchestra pit, so it is a nice change. The story and characters were well performed; it held the interest of the audience and had... More

I've been a season holder on and off since they were housed at Cal State LA. Great performances in an intimate space. In all, this is one of my favorite theater experiences in the LA area and my husband and I will continue to review our season tickets each year.

We have loved this theatre company since their days I downtown Pasadena. Their new location is terrific. We have seen a lot of shows here and they are always of the highest, most professional and exhilarating quality.

Every time I am in Pasadena I try to go and see at least a play. It is a nice, small theater with sits surrounding (almost) the stage. In spite of being relatively new, it inherits a long tradition of the theather carrying the same name which for many years was hosted in a quite disrupted building downtown. Plays are... More

The Noise Within Theater is small and intimate, and the productions are consistently first-rate. They focus on classic repertoire; we've seen at least five plays there, and each one has been excellent. There's not a bad seat in the house, so lower price tickets are fine.

A friend was performing at this playhouse, so a few friends and I went for our first live Shakespeare experience. The playhouse is gorgeous- round, close to the stage, and beautifully designed. I can't claim to know much about the theatre world, but I did enjoy the somewhat unorthodox take they performed on Macbeth. The seats were very comfortable, not... More

Seating is stadium so all seats are good. Actors are professional and top notch. Parking in back can be confusing to new comers who look for theatre from the front on foothill blvd. but well worth seeing the plays

A very intimate theater in the round with every seat a good view. Parking is in the metro transit garage at the rear of the theater.

This a bizarre little theater, we went to see Macbeth with friends and children and had trouble finding parking ultimately discovering that it's a parking lot shared with Metro train riders and the garage was practically full. We then had to walk through an alley, past some homeless people, and in to the theater via a back door. The only... More

Interesting offerings. Fair pricing. All good seat in the small theatre. Fair to excellent acting play selection variable. Semi-remote parking is an issue. Recommend
