Trinity is an icon in the theatre world and has produced some amazing shows over the years. BUT, they aren't shy about expanding the creative envelope, so some of the productions are pretty far out there. Try to talk to people who have seen a show before you get your tickets. The Projo reviews are worse than useless for helping... More

My family and I have been here 2 yearly in a row to see the Christmas Carol. Fantastic play! Highly recommend. The theater is small and every seat is perfect.

Just saw "A Flea in her Ear" and can't recommend it enough. There is not a bad seat in the theater. Close to stage and actors. The prices at the concessions are extremely reasonable. The production and facility are top-notch. Highly recommended.

Really not a bad seat in the house. Not a stuffed shirt theater, but certainly for someone who appreciates the live performances. We go to several events each year and will continue - the capstone is the Christmas Carol to put us in the holiday mood. Concession stands sell wine, coffee/tea and light snacks. It's located in close proximity to... More

We go each winter for A Christmas Carol and sporadically during the year depending on the title. My favorite production of Trinity's was Othello, when they submerged the lower levels in water and the actor stood on a rickety wooden stage that resembled the deck of a ship. Some of their production they put such thought into that it is... More

First time at the Trinity Rep and enjoyed it very much. The theater is lovely and, as others have pointed out, you can't get a bad seat. The production of "The Glass Menagerie" was professional and innovative.

Took our three grandchildren to see "A Christmas Carol," and the performance was excellent. The kids really enjoyed it too. All the seats seemed good - ours were - and it was a really enjoyable afternoon.

A Christmas Carol was our night out with the children recently. The production far exceeded our expectations with the originality and flair for design that we experienced. The theater attendants were very friendly and quickly got us to our seats. There are cash bars available for drinks but not much to eat so go out for a meal before or... More

We went to see A Christmas Carol. We had never been to Trinity Rep before, but we have heard that it is wonderful---and that it is!! The set was great, the actors superb and the presentation was fantastic. We were told that the play changes every year and that is amazing. It is obvious that this theatre company is both... More
