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. More than 250,000 people attend Globe productions annually and participate in the theatre’s education and community programs. 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.

When in San Diego we love to see a play here. Great quality of actors but we love that the theatre is not to big so almost anywhere you sit is a good seat.

I saw the production "Allegiance" starring Lea Salonga and George Takei at the Old Globe, there are 3 theatres in the complex including an open air space.

Loved this production. Engaging personal story about low-wage workers in Boston trying to survive. Insightful and timely play, especially given the current political conversation today (although policy/politics is not overtly discussed in the play), and it provided an interesting perspective on those just trying to get by in America with the cards stacked against them. Moving, humorous, engaging, and entertaining. Highly recommended!

It's in a small theatre where all the seats looked great. A definite steal if you are under age 30 and can get $20 tickets, like we did, but I would also say it's worth full-price tickets as well.

You won't see better theater. The latest and greatest shows. 17 shows that started here wound up on Broadway. The big time, including How to Succeed in Business with Matthew Broderick, and Jersey Boys.
