I'll be honest. I'm not overly in love with the Globe. I have other favorite theaters. Nevertheless, although I didn't renew my annual subscription this year, I'd did buy one for the Summer. I have no fault with the choice of plays, the actors or the theaters. However, it is very difficult to get a good to great seat in general. The patronage of the theater is very strong and because of that it just isn't possible to break into the first 1/3 of the orchestra seats. I've tried, but I'm always way to far back to really enjoy the performances. Also, be warned, the theater is cold. They do tell you to bring a sweater or something to keep you warm and you should. Sometimes it is so cold that you can't enjoy the play. I go to the theater in San Diego two to threes times per month, so I'm not unaware of the offerings. I think for your money the Cygnet is an excellent alternative to the Globe. Also, parking is nothing short of a nightmare on week-ends at Balboa Park.
