“Excellent!”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Great community theatre. Used to come here for years. Now when we visit the kids, we can bring them, and the grandchildren, to most of the shows and enjoy ourselves! Tremendous talent, great selection - we are never disappointed!

“The Play Adults Keep Out is really timeless.”
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”
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”
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.
