This was my first visit to this church converted to a theater, and I enjoyed it.

Went to see Arguendo as part of the International Festival of Arts and Ideas, and truly enjoyed it. Hope to return soon.

This was our first visit to this theater and we found the staff very helpful and nice. We were lucky to get our seats changed to a better location. Just ask, if they have any "house seats" available when you arrive on the day of the show. The play is a combo of Shakespeare's Much To Do About Nothing and... More

The Yale Rep presents work that is intelligent, articulate, and often intellectually challenging. Through their connection to the Yale School of Drama, they also attract many of the theatre's first-rate talent - authors, directors, designers, and actors. As with many university theatres, their intellectual rigor occasionally veers into pretension. But even these are aesthetically engaging more often than not. I... More

Good productions. i have been disappointed very rarely. It is convenient as well as the parking. The level of the productions is extremely is very good and some of these plays tend to move to New York.

Quality shows with big names. Prices are much less expensive than going into New York for the evening and the shows are on the same level. Fun date!

This version of Hamlet was a Yale rep production but was performed at the Yale UniversityTheater on York Street. The cast was terrific as was Paul Giammatti's performance in the title role. There is not a bad seat in the house!
