“Allegience matinee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

We recently attended a matinee performance at the Old Globe last Sunday. Everything was perfect. The lobby display, the stage, the sets, and even the ushers made the experience a good one. I was amazed at the full house and glad so many people could see this important play. Well done!

“A Great modern theatre in the center of Balboa Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Had the pleasure of a one-off visit to see a new musical with George Takei in it (Lietenant Sulu) with Lea Salonga called "Allegiance". We loved the play, but it was augmented by this great venue, a very intimate and comfortable venue (especially with some of the more awkward older theatres we're used to in the West End). Had great assistance from a very helpful fellow Briton in the ticket desk and the whole experience was great. One point - if you don't have a car, you will need to call for a cab to get you home - once the crowds have gone, there's not much ground traffic in this part of Balboa Park at night so be prepared!

“Great performances”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

I've seen a dozen different performances at this theater and they were all great. My favorite was the one man show that told the story of the life of George Gershwin.

“And they say there's no culture in California”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

It's a fun venue with really wonderful productions. I got to see As You Like It this summer and it was a fantastic and engaging performance. We're so lucky to have this in San Diego!

“Great venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Have been here for numerous performances; It is in a great location, the only downfall is the food and beverage...not very good and quite overpriced.
