“Good shows with a spectacular view of the Bay Area after dark”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

I've been attending the shows at this theater in the past 20 yrs. and each time I was very pleased with the performance. I like to sit on the last row in this outdoor amphitheater because after the sunset then you can see a spectacular view of the Bay and also can see the lights in San Francisco. They have tickets for Seniors and that saves me some money to see a nice show in summer time. Some evenings might be a little bit cold and you can see the fog rolls in on top of the hill which makes it more beautiful while watching the show. Highly recommend to see the summer shows being played here from July-Sept. each year. You can have your picnic dinner inside the amphitheater in the late afternoon and then stay for the show. It is a great entertainment for the whole family.

“Live in the Oakland Hils”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

This is the outdoor home of live theater and music in Oakland. Come early and stroll in the late afternoon light along the reflecting pond and climbe the staircase up to the back of the stage area. From hear you can survey the City down to the Bay and visually trip across the bridges to San Francisco. The sunset and the golden Gate might even line up between the trees. Then make you way around to the seating area entrance and find your place to enjoy theater, musical or music performances.

“Fun Night Out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We usually go to the preview show that is very inexpensive. Highly recommend it if you enjoy musical theatre. The talent is often first rate.

“Summer Musicals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The summer musicals are really special. You get to sit outside under a starry sky. You have to bring a jacket and a blanket for the legs because it does get cold. The snacks are very good. The bathroom is big.
