This was a filmed production of a performance of Amadeus at the National Theater. It was absolutely excellent! The acting was superb. The play itself resonates with human foibles --- envy of what another has specifically. The staging was intriguing as it was part period,...More

Have been there for several shows, and pleased with the venue every time. It's beautiful, with comfortable seats, good sight lines, and good acoustics. Only complaint is the $10 parking garage fee!

It could be a great outing if a current event is of any interest to you. Check the calendar. The theater feels very intimate while providing great sight and sound of a performance on stage.

Enjoyed the play "The Screwtape Letters" immensely. Seating was comfortable and the wine bar prior to the play is a great idea. Will be returning in April for Dennis Miller and after that who knows. Very nice place to enjoy an evening.

They bring really good culture to Irvine. Close parking. Nice facility. UCI center across the street if you want to catch a bite before or after.
