This is the best theater you will find in the area, you don't have to go to New York to see a great play!

“Wonderful season”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2012

The 2011-2012 season was inventive but "accessible," while being varied. This is an organization that I've wanted to appreciate more, but had been a bit distant due to the programming. Went to every play this season and can't wait for the next.

“Great Entertainment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2012

I love Center Stage! They have great productions and a long line of fabulous actors. I also went to their fundraising gala and I must say it was wonderful. They have a young writers program for kids elementary to high school students in which the winners have their plays put on at Center Stage. They have complete control over their vision, set design, etc. It's truly amazing and should be supported fully. Kwame, the new director is phenomenal and I look forward to what he brings forth in the years to come.
