  • Old Globe grows more banal year by year. "A Midsummer's Night Dream" is the latest example. So overly staged. Bottom's performance was beyond poor. The actors' delivery have no real sense of...

  • I really love a good small theater experience, and the Old Globe didn't disappoint. The 4-person play of Ebenezer Scrooge was well played, indeed, adding in some good belly laughs. Really enjoyed our experience here.
  • This is a must stop destination for anyone who lives or is visiting San Diego. The quality and production of the shows are on par with New York, and LA. The ticketing and box office services are very easy to use. The location is in the heart of Balboa Park and parking can sometimes be difficult. There’s not a parking lot right next to the theater so expect to do some walking through the beautiful park. The tickets aren’t cheap, but they are worth every penny.
  • A must see! First time at The Old Globe in Balboa Park - can't begin to explain what a wonderful experience. The Grinch had it all! Take the kiddos or a date night!
  • Fantastic venue, amazing productions, great staff. A must for everyone around San Diego and anyone looking for a world class theatre experience.
  • We have seen alot of shows here. Christmas time they have a Christmas theme show. Beautiful pavilion. Alot of photographers take there clients there for pictures.
