“Outdoor theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

We saw an excellent production of "Rosencrantz and Guidenstern are Dead" at the Summer Shakespeare Festival's outdoor theater. The seats were comfortable. Come prepared for a cool evening; the theater rents blankets if you need them.

“Best Acoustics, No "bad" seats!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Each theatre season presents a wide variety of excellent live performances in one of 3 different settings. The theatres are located in beautiful Balboa Park. The summer Shakespeare Festival is held in an outdoor setting. The rest of the season uses the two remaining theatres, which contain virtually no "bad" seats. The productions are always extremely professional, with wonderful sets, directors and actors with national reputations, and wonderful talent. If you enjoy live theatre, don't miss a chance to see a show at the Old Globe Theatre while in San Diego.

“Among the best you will ever see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

I was so lucky to be able to see a performance of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead at the Old Globe. OK, I will admit that I have always liked Tom Stoppard's plays, but the excellent performances from the entire cast made it a really memorable event. A stunning tragicomical combination of humor and serious philosophy which was entirely engrossing.
If you are planning a visit to San Diego, I would absolutely suggest you try and find time to enjoy a performance at the Old Globe, no matter what is currently being performed.
