We visited during the holidays and saw The Nutcracker. We purchased the handicapped seats and they were great. Everyone was very, very helpful. The theater is very clean, comfortable and beautiful. I appreciate the experience that I had.

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

This is a first-rate venue located in the heart of the UC Irvine campus. The staff here is extremely friendly, helpful. I have traveled to many venues with various musicians and most venues don't treat you very well. The theater itself is beautiful and well...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.

I've seen a few shows here, and have always enjoyed the Barclay. I've seen a couple of jazz shows here and the acoustics are terrific. A lowdown on the building and area. It's a nice, clean, beautiful building that is on the campus of UC...More
