“Go Back in Time Under The Moonlight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Simply enjoyed the classic plays with the sky overhead. You will lose yourself in this venue. This is not for those needing instant thrills every second, but it is for those that appreciate the real and true classics and arts. I like to dress up for this venue, and sometimes even wear period costume on occasion, with friends. Please bring a sweater or jacket, as the night air can cool down quite a bit.

“Shakespears best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

This was a wonderful performance of The Merchat Of Venice. The outdoor theater was perfect for a very warm September night.

“Summer Shakespeare a must.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We always purchase the summer Shakespeare series here. The productions are magical including an open stage that utilizes the natural trees behind it among other fantastic visuals. The plaza in front of the Old Globe enclave is a great meeting place, in a great Park (even if you only people watch and dont have tickets) and Molly's Pub serves light but filling fare and beverages. Recently we treated ourselves to one of the best lemon bars we have ever had. A peaceful and lovely evening is guaranteed at the Globe's Summer Shakespeare productions. Blankets and hearing devices are available for a nominal sum. Helps on those hard seats.

“"Merchant of Venice" Was Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Excellent intimate venue - we sat at the back center of the orchestra and no trouble seeing and hearing the performance. It did get a bit chilly (this was in August) so bring a blanket. The play was outstanding - beautifully acted performance lead by Miles Anderson as Shylock.
