Do yourself a favor and go see this NEW PRODUCTION at The Rubicon. It is so funny, I laughed so much, I hurt afterward. I am a violinist so I saw many of the strange and unusual from out of my past, learning the trade. If you like Victor Borga you will love this comedy. If you were a music... More

Got to see Conviction and it was pretty interested to say the least. While I'm not a buff of the theatre scene yet, places like this bring me back to the days of high school when we were able to view performances from the drama students.

A small theater and not a bad seat in the house. Came here last minute while attending the annual surf contest... Now each time I come to surf c-street, I'll probably stay and attend a show at The Rubicon. I have been to lots of theater (everything from neighborhood to broadway and the west-end. This theater is special and the... More

When we moved from L.A. to Ventura County in 2001, I truly missed the variety of good plays that you could find in LA. When I discovered the Rubicon Theatre in Ventura, I was so happy. Here was a small theater with the talent and overall quality that I found in the best small theaters of L. A. Moreover, they... More

It is a pleasure to be able to go to a well performed play locally. This theater is a gem. Every seat is great since it is so small. The sets are creatively done and the quality of the acting is amazing. This is not amateur hour.

Every time I go to Ventura, I spend most of my time at Rubicon Theatre Company. I wrote a review on this theatre last year, but wanted to write a second one. I have been to theatres in New York, London, Paris, Chicago, Toronto, Pittsburgh, Wilmington, Aspen and Cleveland - among others, and this theatre ranks with and above any... More

For a small town theatre, the Rubicon consistently presents quality theatre. I am always amazed at the talent of both the well known award winning actors and the local yet to be known actors. I have seen one women shows, musicals, dramas, and comedies here--after every single one I have walked away more excited than ever about live theatre.

The Rubicon has a history of providing excellent theater in an intimate setting. The variety of plays, the high caliber of the performers, the closeness to the actors, the drama and the comedies -- the experience is always great.

The Rubicon is a former church so the theater is small. This gives the audience, all of them, an excellent seat. The theater draws from local talent and from LA stars such as Bonnie Franklin, the Zimbalists, etc. You will see stage and TV actors you know along side very good professionals from the area. The plays vary from traditional... More
