I don't think there is a bad seat in the house! It was a perfect evening. The sets were incredible, the costumes were on point and the performers were.... AMAZING! What a wonderful production - hopefully it will move onto Broadway. The seats were well worth the price $170 for 2 tickets 2nd row to the left of the stage. They even held a Disco party after the show. 10 Stars!!!

There’s a reason why some blockbuster Broadway hits start out here: audiences appreciate and respect the art of live theater and the productions here are always excellent. Even for me, this theater is worth the drive from Los Angeles! I always leave with a smile on my face. Go support live theater and especially this great company and venue.

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.

I am a season ticket holder and love the plays I've seen-edgy, well presented, and entertaining. This is theater at its best!
Easy parking. Low-key feel.

Jimmy Buffett brought me to La Jolla/San Diego back in June & the venue was great. The sight-lines in this theater were great. I purchased seats 1 & 2 in the second row & worried about how big of a portion of the stage would we miss out on. Luckily it wasn't much. The show was great, all the staff were friendly & helpful. There was a disturbance in our row early on in the first act. They staff dealt with the matter accordingly and without disturbing those of us affected by it.
We attended the Sunday evening performance and were pleasantly surprised to find parking was free! I will certainly keep my eye on future shows at the La Jolla Playhouse.
