We have been Colony subscribers for more than 10 years and usually find that most of the productions are excellent. Even the lesser ones typically have strong performances -- it's just that the material is either weak or not to our taste. The price for season subscriptions is reasonable and there are only good seats (given the size of the... More

I've been to the Colony many times. The productions are first rate with casts you'll recognize from theatre, film and television. One of the city's jewels.

People associate Los Angeles with the movies and TV, but there's a lot of live theater there, too. Perhaps it's because of all the actors hoping to make it in Hollywood, but no matter -- audiences benefit from the abundant pool of talent. The Colony Theater was founded 40 years ago by just such a group and has produced many... More

sometimes the parking is hard to find, but well worth going. They always put on good plays. The theater is always clean, and the staff always greet you with a smile.

My wife and I have been season subscribers to The Colony Theater for many years, dating back to their start on Riverside Dr in Los Angeles. Mostly, we have attended with another couple, who have changed over the years. The present location in Burbank is very nice and convenient, with free parking next to the theater and many restaurants within... More

The Colony Theatre is a hidden gem on the edge of the Burbank Mall. Winner of many Ovation nominations and awards, they house outstanding theater productions with a varied season each year. Every seat in the house is truly great, with an intimate closeness. Season ticket holders will feel like a part of the theater family. The overall quality of... More

This is a lovely smaller professional theater that does wonderful works. Stadium seating so there is no problem with being visually blocked. Nice thrust stage. This is probably one of my favorite theaters around.

A friend and I have been subscribers at the Colony for a number of years. The shows are consistently good. We had season tickets at the Geffen and the Taper but their offerings were so variable that we gave them up. The stage at the Colony is small so they tend to select shows with a small cast but they... More

We always enjoy the Colony. The shows are uniformly excellent, the staff welcoming, not a bad seat, and great value for the money. We are committed, ling-term season ticket holders!
