Center Stage has been around for a long time and still continues to put on excellent shows. I've been attending for more than 30 years and love it.

“Lucky Baltimore to have this gem!”
Reviewed February 3, 2012

I have been attending plays at Center Stage for over 25 years, and it is one of the major cultural attractions that makes Baltimore a great city. The dramas and musicals are professionally performed, the sets are spectacular, and every seat gives an excellent view. There are 2 different theaters so 2 plays can be performed at the same time. The selection of plays is great, and the price is very affordable. Sacha's Cafe serving modest dinners is there, so you don't have Togo elsewhere to eat before the show. There is a parking garage half a block away & if you get there early you can park easily & walk to one of the many close restaurants yo eat dinner. If you want a wonderful introduction to live theater or enjoy live theater, go to a show here, & you'll probably return for more!
