“A loyal season subscriber”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2014

We have attended for years. .For the most part the shows are inventive and done well. The venue has separate theaters for each production, housed in a well renovated building in Mt. Vernon. Try it...makes for a pleasant afternoon or evening.

“Gets Better Each Decade”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

I've lost count as to the number of performances that I've attended here, but I have noticed that they get bigger and bigger stars each year -- along with more provocative, complex work. CenterStage is a real treasure. It's right on par with New York and just as good as Steppenwolf, but without the sky-high prices.

“Friendly and relaxing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

The theatre offers a full range of productions with many offering post event get togethers with the cast. There is a bar and restaurant on site and very helpful ushers and house managers to help with special accomodations.

“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.
