This was our second visit to PlayMakers, and we were again pleased. This time we saw their production of Miller's adaptation of Ibsen's "Enemy of the People." Originally written over 130 years ago, it is still so relevant today. We really enjoyed this wonderful and creative production. The theater itself has a thrust stage so there are seats on three...

Saw "Into the Woods" recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. Quality on the same level as the professional shows at DPAC at a smaller, more intimate setting. Seating arranged so no bad seat in the house. And free parking on a Saturday night in the deck!!

This theater offers truly wonderful performances that are priced just right. The caliber of the productions are professional, outstanding and diverse. The theater is located scenically on UNC Campus. The theaters are of a more intimate size and several theater styles. Great / close viewing no matter where you are seated.

I have had season tickets to Playmakers for over 10 years. Most of the plays have been at least very good but when they fail they fail big time. The sound system is very good with assisted hearing devices available for individuals who have a hard time hearing. The seats are comfortable for 90 minutes or so. If the plays... More

As a subscriber, I visit through the season. Productions are beautifully done, with great direction, sometimes outstanding acting. Naturally, some shows are more to one's liking than others, but performances are usually incredibly professional - acting, sets, and costumes.

PlayMakers selects plays that are not your typical "safe" entertainment. During our first year here we subscribed to a full season of PlayMakers. We thoroughly enjoyed some, were shocked by some, and even wished we were at home with others. This is not a knock on them but will hopefully give the reviewer an understanding of the broad reach of... More

We saw the show Caberet. Wonderful show. The theater is setup so you can see well from any seat in the house. The actors are all top notch performers.

We have had season tickets to Playmakers fot a number of years. There are no bad seats in the theater and most productions are handled very well. We recently saw Cabaret and had seen it years ago in NYC with Joel Grey. I will not say the Playmakers production was better but I am compelled to say that the ending... More

Playmakers has seen some bad seasons but is getting better with new management. It's a repertory theater, so it has a company of regular actors but brings in, on occasion, outside talent. Sometimes the regulars are too-recognizable in the roles they play, but they often work well as an ensemble. Set design is often stellar, sometimes the best thing about... More

My husband and I have been season ticket holders for over 25 years. The theater is small and intimate with the stage projecting out into the theater. This allows viewing from 3 sides. There truly is no bad seat in the house. The cast is always very professional as well as the stage settings. It has been reviewed very favorably... More
