Have been going to this theater for 10 years and always enjoyed their productions. The theater is small and intimate which is great to appreciate the quality of the actors which is always excellent.

Continue to be season ticket holders and the shows just keep getting better. Parking for subscribers is free in the back lot unless there is a civic center event. Then it is a reduced rate. Small, intimate theater where you are close no matter where...More

From the first phone call to reserve tickets until saying goodbye after the show, the "host" was gracious and helpful, almost as though I was visiting his home. I'd never been to TheaterWorks and was delighted! The play (Buyer and Cellar) was awesome and very...More

I great small theater with a variety of plays in a season. I like that they now allow you to reserve your seat when you call in and the flexibility as to when you want to see a show.
