We have been to the playhouse several times. We went last week to see Donna Summers The Musical, which was extended two weeks because it was so popular. It was excellent, and on its way to Broadway. The playhouse is a lovely theater--not too big,...More

There’s a reason why some blockbuster Broadway hits start out here: audiences appreciate and respect the art of live theater and the productions here are always excellent. Even for me, this theater is worth the drive from Los Angeles! I always leave with a smile...More

This place is amazing. Not a bad seat in the house. I’ve had season seats for over 10 years now. Prices have gone up over the years, but it’s still a great value. I saw the very first Jersey Boys, Memphis, Come From Away, etc.

I am a season ticket holder and love the plays I've seen-edgy, well presented, and entertaining. This is theater at its best! Easy parking. Low-key feel.

We enjoy going to the La Jolla Playhouse. It is such an intimate venue with some exceptional performances. Tonight we saw the closing performance of "Escape to Margaritaville". We loved it! The songs, actors, staging... The whole experience was so well done.

The theater is well laid out and not a bad seat in the house. The play was great. A must see if you are a Jimmy Buffet fan. The choreography was great along with the cast. Very talented performers and entertaining.
