“Nice venue - great plays!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Lots of parking. Wine and liquor bars inside and out. New and contemporary. Very well organized and acoustics are perfect. All hosts/hostesses are courteous and helpful. We saw the play "Sideways;" it was a hoot and we want to go back before its run is over.

The Playhouse is very professional! Love it!

“Great Theatre at UCSD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Three separate theatres, located on the campus of University of California, San Diego. UCSD has a marvelous theatre and performing arts department, and many Tony Award winning plays have originated here--including "Jersey Boys", "The Who's Tommy", "Thoroughly Modern Millie", and "How to Succeed in Business..." The talent is obvious, and the variety of shows each season is marvelous.

“Great Theater Productions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We bought the Playhouse Subscription this year and so far all the plays have been wonderful. I've been to several other productions here in the last couple of years and really enjoyed them. We're looking forward to the next production at the end of July.
