Great local theatre just 4 miles from our home. It's an intimate venue and there isn't a bad seat in the house. Every production we have seen was completely professional and excellent. And you won't believe how affordable it is. Add in a light meal at one of Long Beach's great restaurants and you have a wonderful evening out that won't break the bank. Enjoy!

Every play I've attended at ICT has had excellent, professional actors and actresses doing top quality performances. The staging is masterful and the the small theater makes for real connections with the cast as well as great sight lines, so you don't miss anything. The theater itself is reason enough to attend and share an intimate performance experience.

We have been subscribers for years now, and the quality of the productions just gets better and better. Artistic director caryn desai carefully selects the productions so you have a subtle theme for the season and a variety of experiences. The actors have all been excellent, some are award-winners. The theater is fairly small so you can see well from any seat.

We loved this theater! We went to see a play at the last minute that was excellent, but were really impressed with the theater itself. All patrons were seated to the center and slightly to the sides of the stage. Every seat was good. They had all seats filled in, and they curtained off and covered sections not being used so that the theater felt full. I thought that was marvelous, for the actors on stage as well as the patrons. The lighting was good and acoustics were excellent in this small to medium sized theater. Drinks and snacks were available both before the show and during intermission. We really enjoyed our experience and hope to return the next time we are visiting in the area.

I have been a subscriber to ICT's theater series for five years. The always offer up a diverse and interesting line-up, combining a few well known small shows with many regional debuts and unknown shows. The theater is quite small, and there are really no bad seats. The audience tends to be on the older side, but the shows appeal to any audience and cover some controversial and topical subjects, as well as more historical contexts. It is a real shame that the people of Long Beach do not do a better job at supporting the arts, we lost our Broadway series a few years ago, but this is an excellent opportunity to see a good show in Long Beach.
