Great entertainment every week!

Excellent place to go when looking to see a play with local and or international actors. Most of the plays have very good scripts and the admission fees are a very good deal.

It is a nice place, not extraordinary. Most of the shows are good Worth the experience. The parking is a bit crazy. They do not know how to park. Even is this is a first capital of the New World. NO ESTACIONES, means park wherever in the hell you want. They do not pay consequences.

The parking is great and well off the street, the seating, lighting, and air conditioning are all fantastic. Makes for a very enjoyable evening out and good viewing of the performance.

cozy theater with food and live music just outside. You get a real feel of the local bohemian culture. Not touristy.

The National Theatre is a shared building connected to the Fine Arts building. It was also constructed under Trujillo, I believe. I was able to see several plays during a theatre festival some while back, but they also seem to show quite a lot of more commercial theatre and especially musicals. Wonder what those are like.
