“Outstanding Intimate Theater in a Beautiful Setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

We have been visiting the Old Globe frequently over the last several years. The productions are generally first rate, the theater and seating is intimate and comfortable, and the setting, in Balboa Park, is lovely. What a oleasant way to spend an afternoon or evening.

“Great play in a great space”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I saw the world premiere of the play "the Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder". A fantastic play in a fantastic space! It was a little pricey, but worth it. Not to mention all the free things you can do before the play in Balboa Park. Best day of the vacation. Tip- If you come early around 5 o'clock, you can get great parking. Also there are very cheap eats at the expensive Prada restaurant. It's a great restaurant with a great happy hour from 4 to 6.

“Perfect venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

There isn't a bad seat in the house...and the sound is perfect. The historic significance of the property adds to the overall experience, if you have the opportunity don't miss it. A Beautiful evening.
