B Street Theater is a wonderful place to enjoy live theater. It's a small intimate setting (a new location is in the works) and there are no bad seats and the price wont break the bank. Great way to introduce children to live theater. We highly recommend checking out the B Street Theater.

It was my first visit to the B Street Theatre. I had the opportunity to mingle with other playgoers in the small bar off the theatre and sip wine. The theatre itself is small and intimate on three sides of the stage. It was a pleasant experience and evening seeing "Tribes", a British play brought to the USA about the... More

Intimate theatre with small casts and real funny comedies. Not the most elegant place, but they are working on building a new venue. The prices are very reasonable especially with an annual subscription.

My wife and I have been B Street subscribers for over a decade, and we have very much enjoyed most of the shows they have produced for both the Mainstage series, which consists mostly of light comedies, and the B3 series, which features more modern and edgy plays. Many of the plays put on at the B Street are West... More

Nice black box performance, the staff was detailed and dedicated the venue was fitting and the cast was tremendous. The work of B street extends far beyond the performances as the work with children in an effort to introduce the arts. If I lived in the area I would be come a yearly subscriber/

If you are visiting Sacramento and like the theater, this play house will have a play for you without breaking your budget. The shows are first rate, the theater is small and intimate and on three sides of the stage. It is a fun experience with great acting!!

We visited with over 90 third graders to watch "Alexander and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. The seating was excellent for all of the kids and they really related to the characters. The actors sold the story 100%. The kids left asking when they could return!! The adults enjoyed the seating, set, and the presentation.
