My friend and I went to see The Mountaintop yesterday to celebrate my birthday and it was a great way to begin the birthday celebrations. Our seats were perfect and for the price we paid, better than I expected. The theater was larger than I expected and we were pleasantly surprised with everything from beginning to end. I would definitely recommend this theater and come back again soon.

My wife and I are always glad that we go to Center Stage. We hold season tickets, get just a little dressed up, and have a night of dinner and a show. Our tickets include parking garage passes right across the street. Great benefit compared to finding a spot on the street. We like to have a local dinner and this time was at the close by Iggies for Pizza. The shows at Center Stage are held in either of their two theaters. They have a beautiful lobby that includes a limited menu restaurant. But you come for the shows. The actors are top notch and the shows are always well done. You cannot lose when taking in a show at Center Stage!

You cannot go wrong in picking any one of the varied selections offered at this theater in the round. All seats are excellent, direction, acting and stage production are top notch. We saw The Mountain Top this time around. Liked this company so much, I drove in from Phila to take in a performance.

Center Stage hosts wonderful theatre including shows like "Poe" and "My America". They also have one of the best theatre camps in Baltimore.

Center stage is well located in Baltimore, with a parking garage right across the street. We have been able to find on street parking for free most of the time. There is a nice small restaurant for before the show, and a great small bar as well. The theaters are small, and almost every seat is perfect for enjoying a play. Sets are amazing, especially for a small venue, and the performances are exellent. I wish the lobby seating was laid out less like an airport waiting room.

Go see a play here.
