Trinity Rep consistently provides excellent theater. The resident acting company delivers great performance after great performance - regardless of whether the play is an old favorite that you know well or is a world premiere performance. As a season subscriber I've seen well over 70 different plays or musicals through the years and I keep subscribing because they do such... More

Having recently returned to trinity this year after a decade-long hiatus, I can honestly say it's one of the best things about Rhode Island. Turns out, they've even instituted a new plan where anyone under the age of 35 can enroll in the free program which allows them to purchase $25 tickets to each regular season play. How can you...

Attended the open caption performance of The Hunchback of Seville, the show was even more entertaining than I expected. The actors were great, it was an extreme dramatization based on history. I highly recommend the show, read a synopsis beforehand to enhance the experience (I had no idea what the play was about, before doing a web search). As always,... More

This theater is really fantastic!! Very family friendly and every seat you get great view! It is small enough that even if you sit far you can still see the cast's emotions and feel so captured by the show!

I saw Christmas Carol at Trinity Rep last night and greatly enjoyed this year's play. Trinity does Christmas Carol every year and decided to put a spin on it this year. As usual, the actors are very comfortable with their roles and the children are very talented.The special effects are amazing and beautiful.and sometimes eerie. As a volunteer usher, I... More

Caught a showing of their latest production, Julius Caesar...great theater that features acting students alongside the professionals--really adds to the production. They also mix things up a bit---Julius Caesar was a lady in the one...loved it. Theater is downtown and has a national reputation for being one of the best in the country....seats are a half-cirlce so you're all about... More

Great place to see a play. There isn't a bad seat in the house. If you want to make a complete night of it there are plenty of local restaurants within walking distance.

This is an AMAZING theater the beauty of the building the history of the city. The talent of the actors are on par with Boston and NYC. If you are in Providence and enjoy going to shows then take the time and enjoy one of the best spots in the city!

Trinity is an icon in the theatre world and has produced some amazing shows over the years. BUT, they aren't shy about expanding the creative envelope, so some of the productions are pretty far out there. Try to talk to people who have seen a show before you get your tickets. The Projo reviews are worse than useless for helping... More
