Have seen many shows at Trinity and have never been disappointed. This is a great local theater, with intimiate sized venues for pure enjoyment of the productions. Past season was particularly outstanding (2013/2014), ending with the excellent presentation of Sam Shephard's Lie of the Mind. WOW The building itself is worth walking around - inside and out has unique architectural... More

You can have seen a play many times, and Trinity will totally surprise you with innovation. Never disappointed. Have had season tickets for years.

If you can be a season member, would highly recommend it! There is nothing like live theatre to touch your emotions, stimulate your thinking, and feel like part of a community. Prices are very reasonable too!

Good performance, most of the actors are great, especially children. It was not good to see adult actors acting frivolously in front of the children. However, the book is about an orphan finding family, and in that performance last scene does remind us that many of the orphans are still out there waiting to be adopted. It would be stronger...

This theater is perfect for theater goers that want to be up and close to the stage. Great prices on Saturday plays.

Saw a wonderful production of Vanya, Sonia, Masha and Spike. The cast was first rate and we laughed until we cried.

We have attended the performance to A Christmas Carol for the past ten years and are always delighted and surprised by the show. The cast is always of the highest caliber and the performance always pleases. They change a few things every year so that it is never the same show from year to year. If you can attend a... More

Trinity Rep's plays are always superbly performed, with interesting staging and costuming. There are no bad seats, from the front row to the "bench seats" at the very back. Plan to stay for the "talk back" after the show.

My wife and I and our friends regularly attend performances at the Trinity. It has won numerous awards and is one of the best repertory groups in the U.S. Every play we have seen has been excellent and they are often quite innovative, such as staging the musical Camelot in a London bomb shelter during WWII. Great Place.

We attended a one-man comedy show, not a theatrical performance. Last night, we arrived at Trinity only 20 minutes early to find the only open seating in the nosebleed tier. My 6'2" hubby was quite uncomfortable. As fans of Colin Quinn, we'd looked forward to this show, but found the acoustics in the theater working against his rapid-fire, side-bar, mumbling... More
