I've seen several traveling Broadway shows at TUTS. The theater is absolutely gorgeous, with a classy feel. If you have a show that you like playing there do not hesitate to go! I do recommend eating before or after your show, as the food and drinks offered are a bit pricey. We sat in side view boxes at both shows... More

Its two theaters in one, with the big Theater serving up larger, usually better known shows for limited time, such as The Music Man, which we saw in May...and our personal favorite 'TUTS Underground. The Underground is relatively new and brings more 'cutting edge' or worthy, but shorter duration Broadway Shows....by shorter duration, its shows that perhaps had a year... More

I've been to two shows at the Theatre Under The Stars and both have been very well done. My most recent visit was to see the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. The ambiance of the entire theater feels classy without being persnickety. Drinks and food are a bit pricey but they do allow you the option to bring your purchased beverages... More

If you're into the theater arts, I would check the calendar and see what is showing at TUTS. All the plays I've been to have been really nice. I've lucked out and not had to personally pay for my ticket so I'm not sure how "reasonable" they are, but I have been told that if you're a frequent goer to... More

Some traveling shows are not so great but this one definitely could give the Broadway cast a run for its money. Highly enjoyable and staff at TUTS is always hospitable.

We always enjoy the shows at TUTS and love the new edgy series known as TUTS Underground. Venturing out to the edge brings great results and we will be back season after season.

I saw Evita at TUTS last may and it was highly recommendable. The theater is small but the seats are good and comfortable. They valet-park any Lexus for free :)

My best friend came from Ohio so we could see the 50 shades parody. It was well worth her trip! The theater was small but I like that everyone can see the play easily. Snacks and beverages before the show were a bit pricey though.

I had a great time at the theater for the Little Mermaid presented by TUTS and the Sabastian the crab character stole every scene throughout the stage play. Its a great escape for the family and highly recommended to break your kids away from the gadgets and enjoying life in real time at the theater.
