“Arizong Theater Company”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

The venue for the ATC is a lovely old theater where every seat is good. Usually the acting is superb and the sets are amazing. Whether one enjoys the evening depends on the show which is presented.

“Wonderful Theater in a Terrific Setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Tucsonans know about ATC and strongly support it. Oddly, although Phoenix is much larger, ATC does not sell as many season tickets in Phoenix as in Tucson. Too bad. We have had season tickets for many years because we appreciate ATC's quality and because we often learn something new about what is happening in the world of live theater. There are 6 shows per year, with considerable variety in content. Some are frothy, some are classic, and some are very moving. The staging, acting, and directing are typically superb. The Temple of Music and Art is a wonderful venue and downtown now has several excellent restaurants within walking distance. If you are visiting Tucson, have time, and they are offering a show you might like, I would encourage you to give ATC a look.

“Quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

...performances and a beautiful venue for live theater. There is not a bad seat in the house. There is a nice cafe as part of the courtyard if people want to get a sandwich or a glass of wine. The plays are varied and bring a richness to the theater scene in Tucson.

“Great Entertainment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

I went to see "Around the World in 80 Days" put on by ATC. The theater itself is a beautifully maintained theater from the 1920's. All the seats are good and have great leg-room. The play was well done. It had only 5 players, and other than the actor playing Phileas Fogg, they all played 4-7 characters. The sets were really imaginative, especially how they portrayed an elephant.

“Nice theater in a pleasant setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

We attended our first, but not our last, play here: Mountaintop. The play was professionally produced and well acted. We liked the theater very much. It looks like all the seats in the theater are good...we won't spend the extra for "best available" next time.
