We have been to the playhouse several times. We went last week to see Donna Summers The Musical, which was extended two weeks because it was so popular. It was excellent, and on its way to Broadway. The playhouse is a lovely theater--not too big,...More

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.

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.

As usual now days you see a wide variety of outfits. Most dress “snappy casual” though.
