I saw Gem of the Ocean for an evening performance. Very intimate and small theater experience. Don't think there is a bad seat in the house due to the small size. I loved the cast of the play and enjoyed finally seeing this particular part...More

The last time we saw a show at Roundhouse was when they revived Angels in America. This time we saw "How I Learned to Drive," Paula Vogel's 1997 Pulitzer winning play about a woman who endures sexual abuse at the hands of her uncle. If...More

We enjoyed a wonderful evening when friends invited us to see “The Legend of Georgia McBride” at the Roundhouse Theatre. With about 400 seats, it’s hard to imagine a bad seat at the theatre, and the fully-equipped and modern stage does justice to Broadway productions,...More

A small theatre, which basically means that all the seats are good. Comfortable seats, too. Easy parking in the area and easy to walk to the theatre from nearby restaurants. Production of "Handbagged" was professionally done and quite funny. Nice to find this sort of...More

Fabulous original play by Lauren Gunderson, The Book of Will is a story about how the collected works of William Shakespeare came to be. I don't typically seek out plays by or about Shakespeare. This one however, was so incredibly well done. The actors were...More

The Round House served as both a training ground for actors and others involved in the theater as as an inexpensive, fully professional theater. Parking is available immediately across the street. Nearby restaurants are family-priced with a wide variety.

No, this is a regular theatre with refreshments. It is a nice, intimate performing space, with creative award-winning shows, good actors, directors, and production staff.
