A lot of hoopla is raised about this theater - and deservedly so. It is not too large and the actors are first rate. Seats are well situated so that you can easily see the stage from anywhere. We sat in the right section, fifth row, and it was easy to see over the people in front of us. We were surprised that the acoustics were such that when actors went to the other side of the stage or turned away from us we could not clearly hear them. Also, the rows of seats are close together - I kept getting kick bumps from the person behind me - which makes it necessary to stand up whenever someone needs to get in or out of the row. Arrive early for good parking or use valet. If you don't, be prepared to walk the equivalent of several blocks. Parking is free but there are several other museums, restaurants, etc which attract people to beautiful Balboa park.
