“Up Close Theater”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

The Center Stage is a small theater where you sit close to the stage and really feel a part of each performance. The schedule usually has a wide selection of plays, and every one we've ever seen has been excellent in quality, both drama and musicals.

“Cool venue to see plays”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014

There are many theaters in Baltimore to see theatrical productions and Center Stage doesn't disappoint. This is an historical venue in Baltimore and worth seeing at least one show in.

“Comfortable and Close To the Action”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

Always enjoyed coming here many years ago. Moved back to the area and enjoyed myself again. Productions are first rate and the theatre is just the right size. 300+ with every seat close to the stage. Will go back again many more times.

“Good Theater Made Accessible”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

Great small room theater. We enjoyed the show, the acting was phenominal. Seems like all seats would have a great view of the stage, we were impressed with the value that this theater delivers. The ushers were extremely friendly and helpful in getting us to our seats. It is also convienient to parking at the Sun garage. They do everything to make the theater going experience pleasurable and accessible to everyone.
