Top quality is its trademark. It is one of the San Diego's top two theaters for new theatricals. There are around 40 non-movie theaters in this area.

There’s a reason why some blockbuster Broadway hits start out here: audiences appreciate and respect the art of live theater and the productions here are always excellent. Even for me, this theater is worth the drive from Los Angeles! I always leave with a smile...More

This place is amazing. Not a bad seat in the house. I’ve had season seats for over 10 years now. Prices have gone up over the years, but it’s still a great value. I saw the very first Jersey Boys, Memphis, Come From Away, etc.

I am a season ticket holder and love the plays I've seen-edgy, well presented, and entertaining. This is theater at its best! Easy parking. Low-key feel.

We enjoy going to the La Jolla Playhouse. It is such an intimate venue with some exceptional performances. Tonight we saw the closing performance of "Escape to Margaritaville". We loved it! The songs, actors, staging... The whole experience was so well done.

As usual now days you see a wide variety of outfits. Most dress “snappy casual” though.
