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

Trinity Rep is a nationally acclaimed professional regional theatre. Its seasons of plays range from classics to contemporary, from experimental drama to Broadway musical. A good number of its long time resident company, while still generally fine performers, are getting a bit "creaky," but some of the new talent they've brought in is just excellent. The quality really varies from... More

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.
