We have been subscribers to the Geffen Playhouse for years. Here is why. Although we find at least one production each year that we think is unbelievably bad, the majority of the productions are wonderfully rewarding, and even a terrible play is a good night...More

Not a bad seat in the house. Staff is a little curt, but they are probably students. Production was excellent and the price was perfect, with a great selection for dining nearby. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

It’s obvious in just one visit that this community supported Theatre is something special. The program detailing how donations allow extra rehearsals is inspiring. The physical attributes of spacious seats and plenty of leg room is much appreciated. The production we saw tonight CHASING MEM’RIES...More

I saw Actually there -- it was an amazing play and performance. The space (the smaller of the two theaters) was perfect. An intimate setting but a large stage giving the actors and directors plenty of options.

Saw "Barbaque" here and laughed through most of it. All of the actors were phenomenal and we really enjoyed the production. The theater was nice and charming. Seats aren't all that comfortable but it didn't ruin the experience.

We have a subscription to the Geffen and we just saw Big Sky. It was an outstanding performance. Well written, engaging, entertaining and poignant all at the same time. The casting was spot on and the cast's performance was engaging. Definitely worth attending.
