We saw Hamilton here and had had a great experience. We did not park, but there seemed to be parking options on site. Some restaurants within walking distance including Tender Greens, a Thai Restuarant and others.

My wife and I went with some friends to see Hamilton the Musical Play last week and had a great time. The musical was everything that the press said it was. It was very educational, historical, funny, and music was off the chart. The performances...More

I have gone to some really nice theaters over the years-the Music Center in LA, the Pantages in Hollywood and the Dolby in Hollywood. This does not compare favorably to them. While the sound and the seats are good, the arrangement of the seats is...More

I really loved my experience at The San Diego Civic Theatre. It's classy, comfortable and aesthetically pleasing from the swirly red malachite patterned retro looking carpet to the glittery chandeliers. We went to see the Book of Mormon which was totally excellent! While I loved...More
