“Wonderful acting/singing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

My wife, our 22 yr old daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the production and theater. Top quality acting and singing and even our daughter (who doesn't enjoy musicals) was thrilled by the show.

“California Treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Everyone should attend a production at the Old Globe at least once in their lives! The theatres themselves have a reputation for innovative, quality productions and the size & acoustics are perfect.

“Good architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Its a pity that I didn't had a chance to catch a show in here. but it has good architecture. And the building next to it has a great carvings and mosaics which is a good place for photography session or pre-wedding session.

“Classic experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Theatre in the round is a unique experience and the outdoor performances are wonderful in the summer evenings. Great for dates or families with older children. Not many options for dining at the park - recommend dinner just off Park Blvd on the West side of the park. Spend time after the show walking through the park down the prada.

“World famous plays just minutes from home.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

I've seen so many terrific plays here- and at one preview was sitting next to the playwrite - he said he was taking notes on where I laughed or giggled and appreciated my 'input.'
Just saw A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder- more laughter and giggles. Next play will sober me up- Ibsen's The Doll House- but whatever I see I know there isn't a bad seat in the house.
