Playmakers Rep has two theatres - a mainstage and and an experimental theatre - to give audiences a range of choices from established classics to new playwrights. Most cast members are from the UNC Theatre Dept., although Equity actors often appear as well. Tickets are very reasonable, especially if you purchase a subscription. The only down-side is parking, which can... More

As a subscriber, I enjoy the ambiance of this theater. There isn't a bad seat in the whole place. One can see and hear quite well from just about anywhere. I look forward to attending whatever the company chooses to produce here. Prices are very reasonable.

The historic Playmakers theater was the venue for the Southern Culture on the Skids concert after the UNC Libraries' opening of the exhibit, Lard Have Mercy, which focused on the 30-years-together band, within their Southern History Collection. We have normally seen SCOTS at the Cat's Cradle in Carrboro or in Raleigh at a club that is now closed. The acoustics... More

great theatre group. Wonderful productions. The community evenings are quite a reasonable way to get to enjoy live theatre often. For the most part, very contemporary plays and interpretations of.

The layout of the theater seats is simply above average - no matter where you sit, you have a great view of the stage. This is not often t he case. The plays we have seen have always been very good and we look forward to seeing Cabaret. We wish they had more performances in the afternoon, even during the... More

All the seats are excellent and thus you have an excellent view of the stage. We saw The Imaginary Invalid and enjoyed the play although would have preferred a more "Moliere" interpretation. Playmakers should have matinees during at least once during the week.

The shows here are professionally done and very entertaining. There's not a bad seat in the house. The staff helps with any of your needs. On opening night, they always have food and drink. Wonderful!

Paul Green is a small but lovely facility in UNC's drama school. There are no bad seats in the auditorium. The theater manages to obtain some excellent talent each season, including some members of the UNC drama faculty. The theater puts on a half dozen or so plays each year. We haven't attended one yet that we didn't thoroughly enjoy.... More

We love the Paul Green Theater. It's a marvel of disguise - first a ship, then a 1950s house, then a Shakespearean forest. Amazingly good performances, but I especially appreciate the set design and costumes. Always a treat. Season ticket holders for years and year! And what a bargain for Broadway quality shows!
