Long Beach Playhouse is one of my favorite theaters. The seating is in a u-shape with only five rows deep on any side. This gives you an up-close and intimate theater experience. Every play I've seen there has been an enjoyable night out. I especially...More

The talent at this small theater is really amazing! Many visits and have been impressed by all of the plays in both talent and production. Customer appreciation however is lacking... no stand out performance in this area.

Funny well done play about a young woman who has multiple personality disorder. Without disrespecting the diagnoses, the play is humorous and insightful. All of the actors inhabit their roles well demonstrating an excellent sense of timing. The choreography in the fight scene is well...More

Long Beach Playhouse has a parking lot in back. Suggest you get there early as it does fill up.
