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.

Here to see Escape to Margaritaville. Not a bad seat in the house. Acoustics are pretty good. Great set up for this show. Parking is better than most venues. Easy to get in and out. Expensive venue though.

The Mandel Weiss Theatre is a fabulous theatre... not a bad seat in the house! The play was great fun, well cast, and light and lively as they created a lighthearted plot-line to weave together Jimmy Buffet's top songs. A fun night with a very...More

Not sure if this review is supposed to be about the La Jolla Playhouse or the Margaritaville musical, so I will write a bit about both. The Playhouse is a small enough venue that there are no bad seats; ours were in the last row,...More
