Yes, it's local but with equity actors, excellent sets, seats with no obstructions and a choice of new and old productions, it is one of few groups in South Florida that gives you a bang for your buck! If you like theater, whether drama or comedy, Dramaworks is the answer.

We love the theater and this one is great for a local company. The sets are great and the acting and directing is normally very good.

Thanks for your review and appreciating the work that goes into each production by the different designers and actors that get brought in. A lot goes into the audition process as well as hiring the best designers for each show. We hope to see you this season! More

We have been to many performances and are always impressed. The talent is outstanding. Drama choices are heavy, as would be expected, with fine direction and surprising sets. Each summer, they present a musical. Do not miss them.

This theatre is just the right size. The play we saw had only one scene, and the stage had enough room to give the actors space for their movements. The chairs are comfortable, and the whole box office and vestibule is low key.

We're so glad you enjoyed your visit here. We put a lot of thought into the design of the theatre and comfort of the audience when we moved here in 2011. Hope to see you throughout the rest of the season! More

What an exceptional theater experience in West Palm Beach. My husband, son and I attended the evening performance of A Long Days Journey Into Night. What an outstanding production. Wonderful venue. I look forward to future performances.

The History Boys was playing while we vacationed in West Palm Beach recently so we decided to check it out on a Sunday evening. Parking at night on Sunday in the drive up lot just behind the theatre is free. Ticket prices seemed to be all the same price no matter where you sat. I was fortunate to locate &... More

WOW...What a fun time. I went to see THE HISTORY BOYS and enjoyed the show so much. I was lucky to have front row seats and could feel the power from the actors. I was looking right into their eyes. It was such an amazing experience to be SOOOOO CLOSE. The audience was really into the play and that was... More

Acting is consistently excellent and the productions are spectacular. I love theatre and was curious about Dramaworks. The location is right in the heart of downtown, next to the water fountains. Theatre is small but well managed.

Every time we go to a production, we wonder where does this talent come from. Each of the actors/actresses is always perfectly cast, and performs withe expertise. The choices of plays are not necessarily on your list of favorites before you attend, but after, you tell all your friends to try to get tickets. Just last night, we were treated... More
