We went to support one of our friends who was in a production and this is how we discovered the theater in Pasadena. Of course, we went to support but were really taken aback by how fantastic a theater and theater company this was. Easily accessible on the metro Gold Line and plenty of parking in the Gold Line structure,... More

This wonderful theater is not know by many yet but it should be. It's a theater in the round with perfect view from any seat. If you're a first timer going to one of the Christmas performances to get totally immersed.Good acting, dancing sets...parking is behind in the metro parking structure. There are often discounted tickets online, making it a... More

This Shakespearean play was done in a modern setting and very simple mostly black costumes, by a relatively small company. It's a small theatre with seats in a semicircle, and the actors are often in the aisles or in a balcony space. It was among the best productions of Shakespeare I have ever seen. The company transported us to Ancient... More

Interesting seating arrangement put the audience right in the performance. We were able to see a limited performance which was entertaining, funny, theatrical and a nice operetta. The orchestra plays on stage as there is no orchestra pit, so it is a nice change. The story and characters were well performed; it held the interest of the audience and had... More

I've been a season holder on and off since they were housed at Cal State LA. Great performances in an intimate space. In all, this is one of my favorite theater experiences in the LA area and my husband and I will continue to review our season tickets each year.

We have loved this theatre company since their days I downtown Pasadena. Their new location is terrific. We have seen a lot of shows here and they are always of the highest, most professional and exhilarating quality.

Every time I am in Pasadena I try to go and see at least a play. It is a nice, small theater with sits surrounding (almost) the stage. In spite of being relatively new, it inherits a long tradition of the theather carrying the same name which for many years was hosted in a quite disrupted building downtown. Plays are... More

The Noise Within Theater is small and intimate, and the productions are consistently first-rate. They focus on classic repertoire; we've seen at least five plays there, and each one has been excellent. There's not a bad seat in the house, so lower price tickets are fine.

A friend was performing at this playhouse, so a few friends and I went for our first live Shakespeare experience. The playhouse is gorgeous- round, close to the stage, and beautifully designed. I can't claim to know much about the theatre world, but I did enjoy the somewhat unorthodox take they performed on Macbeth. The seats were very comfortable, not... More

Seating is stadium so all seats are good. Actors are professional and top notch. Parking in back can be confusing to new comers who look for theatre from the front on foothill blvd. but well worth seeing the plays
