This is a smallish, intimate theater with Fantastic productions. I always go on the evenings that i can afford (it was Tuesdays).

Creative work, such as The Whale by Sam Hoffman (a MacArthur genius award winner), as well as stalwarts, such as the Reduced Shakespeare Company's History of Comedy, this is the place to go to see exciting productions in a comfortable setting, with great restaurants in the vicinity.

I have seen several performances here and none have disappointed me. Comfy seats, friendly staff and if you need a break on the price just go to the desk on the night you want to go. If you ask there are often tickets available at a reduced price. The plays are carefully selected for the year and there is a... More

We love this community gem. Every play we've seen here has been exceptional. The actors, staging and production are always professional and of the highest caliber. We've gone numerous times in the last few years and have never been disappointed. Easy free parking. If you're local you should check it out and if you're traveling it would be a great... More

We got tickets for this production and enjoyed every moment of the experience, from the will call service to the ticket takers to the plush if faded velvet seats to an AMAZING performance. It was a treat to attend the theater and we will be back for sure. Plenty of free parking right outside the door, too. You can reserve... More

I highly recommend this theater. We saw Othello --what a cast and an appropriately horrific death scene. Can't wait for more.

MTC is a gem; still unknown to many in the SF Bay Area even though they've been giving sterling productions for 45 years. We are season ticket holders and never miss a production. The artistic work is truly first class.
