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

WOW! Can't believe it took us so long to learn about this theater. It is a charming building. The theater is maintained quite well. Seats are comfortable and there is not a bad seat in the house, however the balcony is not quite as good as the main floor. Parking is on the street, no meters in this area. For... More

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!
