Under the leadership of Erna Finci Viterbi Artistic Director Barry Edelstein, The Old Globe produces a year-round season of 15 productions of classic, contemporary, and new works on its three Balboa Park stages: the Donald and Darlene Shiley Stage in the 600-seat Old Globe Theatre and the 250-seat Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, both part of The Old Globe’s Conrad Prebys Theatre Center, and the 605-seat outdoor Lowell Davies Festival Theatre, home of its internationally renowned Shakespeare Festival.

Numerous world premieres such as the 2014 Tony Award winner for Best Musical, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, Bright Star, Allegiance, The Full Monty, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,and the annual holiday musical Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! have been developed at The Old Globe and have gone on to enjoy highly successful runs on Broadway and at regional theatres across the country.

A famous mainstay in San Diego cultural scene which consitently produces great plays that often then go to Broadway and grow up. The structure is dated and nothing special but once inside it is all about the quality of teh acting.

I love the Old Globe. It is small, never a bad seat and enjoy the ambience! The little gift shop has great stocking stuffers for XMAS.

The Old Globe has many "Broadway type" shows and there is not a bad seat in the house. Quite small with comfortable seating and reasonable prices.

We saw Inherit the Wind and thought it was top notch. Also the seats were very comfortable and the location is a short walk from the Scripps Inn.
