“The Play Adults Keep Out is really timeless.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Saturday nights at 7 PM if you are near Santa Monica, please go and see the Play, "Adults Keep Out" since it is really well done as a musical with adventure, romance and good political satire for all!

“Great Local Theater”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

It seems like a hundred theaters are in LA, and everyone seems to be working there while waiting for the real break to take place.

Santa.Monica Playhouse is not that kind of theater. A dedicated band of actors and staff struggle to keep it going while producing excellent theater.

A specialty on weekends is children's theater - local parents would do well to take advantage of this local gem!

“Not The Playhouse Of My Dreams”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

This is a run down theatre that is a fire trap and desperately in need of serious renovation. It is a shame because their venues are excellent. It is a mystery why the city has not condemned this building.

Support the art in Santa Monica. Great place to introduce your children to theatre. Good adult shows sometimes too.
