I never miss attending each play performed by the REP. My daughter and I always get season's tickets and have for many years. The acting is very professional, and the staging is great, too. Don't miss these plays!! (I'm not reviewing a hotel, but I had to say when I traveled and check box about hotel in order to submit!

We have been season ticket holders for about 9 years. The quality of the plays has been outstanding. The actors are professionals and members of Actors Equity.These actors have been together for quite a while and have developed a real chemistry. Absolutely worth seeing.

We are season ticket holders. The play choices are always interesting, well acted and enjoyable. I can't say enough positive remarks but hope you'll consider trying this theater company's work.

My husband didn't think he liked plays but now we are season ticket holders. Excellent casting, set designs, and variety of offerings. They are very flexible if you need to change your ticket or add one for a guest. Do buy the parking garage voucher. These are not student performances, they're professionals. Usually at the beginning of a run, they... More

Do go to the REP to see the hot Broadway show. Go for a good evening of the theater. They are a little experimental, which can be good or bad but always interesting. The prices reflect the shows and are reasonable.

I have been a season ticket holder for 3 years, and enjoy each play I've seen. Acting is fabulous, really first-rate, and they perform a wide variety of plays for their audiences. The theater is small enough to allow audience members to feel "close to the action" (we've been seated all over the theater), and all seats are great. Well... More

The REP Theatre is by far the best performing group in the region. The quality of performances by the actors is unparalleled, but easy to take for granted is the expert sound and light design, the flawless costumes and props, and the stunning scenery. Some of the best productions I've seen of classic theatre works (Shakespeare, Shaw, etc.) have been... More

Have been attending the REP for 4 years. The professional company is excellent especially in farces and comedies. Their timing is excellent. The seats are comfortable and the acoustics are excellent.
