“It just get's better and better”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

There are 3 different theater venues at the Playhouse so they are able to put on a very diversified program, from works in progress to the many shows that have started in La Jolla and gone on to Broadways like Jersey Boys.

“La Jolla Playhouse”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Awesome little theatre with a reputation that is second to none. Great show and wonderful venue. We had some time beforehand to explore the University grounds, nice for a little jaunt before the show.

“The Who & The What”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

Wow, what a terrific production! The playwright did a wonderful job with describing universal experiences - I could imagine a similar conversation in families of almost any culture where more conservative generations struggle with younger, less conservative views. The cast was great, and the production is polished. My wife was concerned by our seats, which were in one of the orchestra sections on a side of the set, instead of in the main section. But we found the side section to be excellent. Very nice theater; we'll definitely try to return when we are next in SD. Highly recommended!

“Don't Miss "The Who and The What"”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

This play has a thought provoking story line and is an excellent production! We had seats in the middle of the third row of the side stage. We could see and hear everything, even at the times one Actor had their back to the side audience. It made you feel like you were in the living room observing the family dynamics. The cast and crew have done a wonderful job of the production. If you are travelling by taxi be sure to take a print out of the directions to your destination as it is not known by all Drivers! The theatre staff were also very friendly and helpful in arranging return transportation to our lodging.

Reviewed March 4, 2014

This is another of the excellent regional theaters in the USA - Tony awarded and in La Jolla so if your stay includes seeing wonderful theatre and you're staying near La Jolla this would be the venue to attend!
