“Who doesn't enjoy a great play?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

San Diego really is a great town for theater. The Old Globe is a wonderful setting for both new and revived plays. It's intimate enough to make you feel a part of the play and sophisticated enough that it challenges your mind and your heart.

“Wonderful performances at the Old Globe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

We never visit San Diego without seeing a performance at the Old Globe Theater in Balboa Park. All the seats have a great view of the performance. We just saw The Scottsboro Boys and it was a spectacular performance by a talented cast.
Before the show we stop in to The Prado for a quick bite in the bar restaurant.

“A Room with a View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

Good movie turned into a great live musical. The music was superb and the acting great. Would have loved more of the semi-nude scene!

“Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

We are season ticket holders and don't think there has ever been a bad show. . . some better than others - and some fantastic. The White Theater ALWAYS has wonderful productions in a theater in the round setting. The Old Globe is glorious - loving being in there.
