The Center Stage is a small theater where you sit close to the stage and really feel a part of each performance. The schedule usually has a wide selection of plays, and every one we've ever seen has been excellent in quality, both drama and musicals.

There are many theaters in Baltimore to see theatrical productions and Center Stage doesn't disappoint. This is an historical venue in Baltimore and worth seeing at least one show in.

Always enjoyed coming here many years ago. Moved back to the area and enjoyed myself again. Productions are first rate and the theatre is just the right size. 300+ with every seat close to the stage. Will go back again many more times.

My wife and I just bought season tickets for the 2013/2014 season, and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The eclectic mixture of theatrical presentations have been utterly engaging,, ranging from an on-stage production of the Marx Bros' "Animal Crackers" to the two man drama, "Stones in his Pockets". The venue is made up of two theaters: the Pearlstone and the... More

We have seen 3 shows here this year (2 dates, 1 with family), and have enjoyed every experience. The acting is always superb, the venue intimate, and the shows creative and slightly edgy. My favorite thing about this theater is that it attracts a diverse audience. Even if you are not the usual theater-goer, I think you would feel comfortable... More

My sisters-in-law and I have subscribed to our second season say Center Stage and it never disappoints. It is one of the best theater values out there. Always excellent acting and many times enjoyable, thought provoking plays. It is a great way to enjoy an evening and support the Arts.

If you like drama , black shows that are a comment on black America and good acting then this is a perfect place to go. A bit too black for me; needs a more varied selection of shows.

My wife and I have been subscribers for nearly 30 years. We very much enjoy the variety of plays presented during a season despite the occasional clunker, which is not surprising given the efforts made to showcase new playwrights. The quality suffered during the transition to a new artistic director, but he seems to be getting his feet under him.... More
