This is a great, small theatre that does not have a bad seat in the house. And no matter where you sit you are close to the action. It appears the theatre was built in a renovate church. I don't believe it has more than 200 seats, which by-the-way are very comfortable. The theatre has a refreshment stand which is... More

We saw Noises Off. It was done fairly well. I think that some or the actors were from LA. It was funny, but not amazing. Don't sit in the balcony; the view was quite obstructed and we missed some of the action.

This small but cozy theater attracts great talent from southern California. The Christmas program "Little Miss Scrooge" was a fun way to begin the season. There are no bad seats because of the size.

Maybe my expectations were peaked by the reviews that I had read, but I found the evening at the Rubicon to be "average at best". Yes the acting was fine (although not crazy for the show) and yes the theater was nice (but musty smelling) and..... well I am sure you are getting my drift. I was expecting to be... More

I saw NOISES OFF at the Rubicon Theater last night. Thoroughly enjoyed the show and LOVED the theatre itself! I am from the New York City area and have been to many Broadway shows. The professionalism in this theatre measures up to Broadway and is a wonderful evening out!

I really like the Rubicon because there is not a bad seat in the house. It's little and quaint, and the shows there are very professionally done. On this visit, I took my parents to see a show about folk music. It was perfect for all of us!

Great performance by Joe Spano and Tucker Smallwood, in this somewhat dark but enjoyable play by Cormac McCarthy. The venue is a funky re-purposed Church.

We went with a group of friends to see a play that I'd seen in LA. The performance was terrific, the venue is very inviting...comfortable seats with parking near by.

My wife and I have been here twice to see plays and, even though I would not consider myself a huge fan of plays, both times were really fun. The actors are great and the setting is very intimate so you feel like you are part of the action.

If you like live perfromances then visit the Rubicon. The perfromances range from drama to music to repertory. Sometimes the language can be adult only so check that in advance. Very intimate setting where the audience is close to the actors and action. Professional performance....not an amateur group.
