We saw an amazing production of the Jungle Book at this quaint and beautiful theatre. The ticketing staff and actors were delightful. I was disappointed with the Ushers that were very unfriendly and not helpful at all. They did not acknowledge guests and seemed not very happy to be there. But that won't stop us from returning to see the... More

We subscribe by buying flex tickets which allow us to pick dates that we know we can attend. Last season the play Satchmo was an amazing one man show. We were stunned by the performer all the way through the performance. We have many instances of being riveted by the shows at this theatre.

I feel so blessed to have this wonderful theatre in my community! The productions are of really high quality, from the actors, set, costumes and interpretation of the classic pieces. There is also a very wide range of offerings each season. The theatre is intimate enough to really engage with the performance. They also offer many activities to get the... More

Marin Theatre Company offers consistently outstanding productions. Often a little edgy, with fantastically talented performers and creative sets. The theatre itself is intimate and well designed - I don't expect there is a bad seat in the house. As season subscribers for well over 20 years, we have enjoyed watching the theatre evolve from a local hidden treasure to a... More

Creative work, such as The Whale by Sam Hoffman (a MacArthur genius award winner), as well as stalwarts, such as the Reduced Shakespeare Company's History of Comedy, this is the place to go to see exciting productions in a comfortable setting, with great restaurants in the vicinity.

I have seen several performances here and none have disappointed me. Comfy seats, friendly staff and if you need a break on the price just go to the desk on the night you want to go. If you ask there are often tickets available at a reduced price. The plays are carefully selected for the year and there is a... More
