This is a small theatre with approximately 75-100 seats. You really can not get a bad seat in this small intimate setting. Being this small it really makes you feel like you are part of the cast and can easily see everything going on.

We have been season ticket holders for several years. We do find that some of shows are better than others, but that may just be because of what we like to see. The plays are mainly gay themed but they do not go overboard. I would feel comfortable taking anyone with an open mind to this theatre.

This theater company is loud and proud of the San Diego gay community. They often perform original plays adapted from old standards, adding gay/lesbian elements that permeate the performance. Often hilarious, often thought provoking, always getting thier message of equality and liberty to anyone who will listen. Many of the shows are musicals. Very talented performers. With their tiny stage and crowded seating plan, you are always close to the action.
