Wow. This little theatre has a great reputation in the industry and it is well deserved. The productions I've seen are as good as NYC; in fact plays developed at Rubicon have traveled to Off-Broadway. Actors are mostly from LA and the season is a compelling variety of old and new dramas, comedies and musicals. The front of house staff... More

I have been s season ticke tholder for the last 3 or 4 years, The company tries very hard to bring quality productions here to Ventura. Some have been outstanding, and all have been a pleasure to see and also to hear (the sound system is well run and small size makes you feel quite into the show). I recommend... More

This theater is OK for local theater. Better than anything in Moorpark, Camarillo, or Thousand Oaks (except for the Civic Arts Plaza which is wonderful). It is somewhat comfortable, smaller venue. The local theater company is known for a few celebrity-level actors, but most are just above average local folks. No bad seats in the house, but the acoustics could... More

Ordered performance tickets in the first row and paid in full. One hour before the performance, I received a phone call telling me the seats were no longer available and we would be changed to the 3rd row. I understand things happen but it was the "attitude" that was not acceptable. No apology or attempt to compensate for "their" mistake.... More

We have been season subscribers almost since the theatre has been in Ventura. They do very good productions, for the most part. They are cast with good actors and we have enjoyed most of the plays that they have put on. Nobody can like everything and sometimes we aren't thrilled by a production, but, there is usually something about it... More

One word "awesome." Friendly staff and they have student discounts that save you about half. Absolutely loved the performance will come back next time I'm in town

This theater is close enough to LA to draw major actors, playwrights & composers yet distant enough to make quality seats quite affordable. Literally, there are no bad seats and as far as our experience is concerned, no bad productions.

While I don't have season tickets, I have been to the Rubicon over a dozen times and have never had a bad seat or seen a poor performance. Small, intimate theatre with comfortable seats, good sound and great vibe. Everyone connected with the Rubicon treats you like a VIP. You should really try it and see what I mean.
