Attended closing performance of THREE PENNY OPERA last Sunday and if it hadn't been closing my husband and I would have gone to see it again!! Just another in a long list of brilliant productions, drama, musical and comedy that this company has brilliantly produced. When we are in residence in the area, we make reservations, for whatever play it... More

Yesterday I watched "Three Penny Opera". I have watched several other musical productions at this theater, and this was just as excellent. The programs have background information, which, for me, is a must-read. Seating is excellent; parking isn't, so review it before attending. Many of the same professional actors appear in each production, teaching the theater majors how it's done.... More

We saw Shakespeare's "A Midsummer's Night Dream" performance Friday night and it was incredible. The set design was innovative and breathtakingly beautiful. Another stellar performance at this theatre!

We saw "A Midsummer's Night Dream" yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was not what I expected but it was well worth the money. I grew up in the Knoxville area and was lucky enough to see many plays at the Clarence Brown Theater as a child. I have fond memories of 1776, Fiddler on the Roof, and Don Quixote.... More

Clarence Brown always puts on a good show. The venue is easy to find on the UT campus, and parking is free in the G2 garage. The seating is good and there are really no bad seats in the house. The first few rows are flat and might be too close to see the action across the entire stage (I... More

My sister and I saw the Sunday matinee of MASTER HAROLD AND THE BOYS. Incredibly powerful, superbly cast with exquisite acting and design. It's Tuesday, and I cannot stop thinking about this amazing piece of work. What a joy it is to have this level of theatre in our community for an extremely affordable ticket price! The mission of the... More

My family has been to so many theater productions in the East and Middle Tennessee, as well as Southwest Virginia and this production is by far our favorite of them all. We go every year and love it each time. The costumes, singing, and acting are excellent and we have never been disappointed. It has become one of our favorite... More

My family and I saw a billboard advertisement for "A Christmas Carol" at the Clarence Brown Theater and decided to try something different for a night out. What a great decision that was! We loved it! There really isn't a bad seat in house. The actors did a great job. I would definitely recommend this. I am already looking for... More

My family has had season tickets to the Clarence Brown for awhile now! We have not been to a show that we did not absolutely love. The acting quality is the best in Knoxville and the atmosphere is great. There is not a bad seat in the place! The stage is the perfect size and you can see all the... More
