Two Excellent Theater Venues

Both of the venues at Berkeley Rep are excellent wth no bad seats. Good views and sound. The Rep has long staged excellent and courageous productions. We return again and again.

We watched a Thursday evening play, Hand to God, at the Peet's Theater. What an enjoyable experience! The satirical comedy had us in stitches. Really good. Peet's Theater is nicely set out too. Not too big so we get a good view even from the second last row. We realized that one doesn't need Premium tickets to get a good... More

We've had season tix for 30+ years. It's our favorite form of culture. You might not like the play, but the plays are always well done. We saw "The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tipps". It's a WWII play presented in a fun, creative way. The actors were multitalented and exceptional.

I have visited this venue/company as a tourist from the UK a couple of times now. My most recent visit was last month. The productions here travel and their work is known here in the UK as well as the U.S. I love the fact that they take risks and have produced shows as varied as American Idiot and work... More

A top-flight regional theater company, the Berkeley Rep offers sophisticated plays in its sleek modern facility in downtown Berkeley. Its thrust stage in a gently curved amphitheater provides excellent sight lines from every seat. I took in The Last Tiger in Haiti, a recent play that is a co-production with the La Jolla Playhouse. Direction and level of acting was... More

This theater is very impressive. The performance of the play "it can't happen here" was incredibly moving. A powerful performance that will linger with us for a long long time. The entire cast was magnificent. Such a timely subject. This was our first time at Berkeley rep but it won't be our last

We have seen 3 different shows at the Rep. Amazingly different. Provocative, fun, serious, mind blowing. Never disappointed.

We've had season tix for years, and this is our favorite among our cultural choices. You may not like the play, but it's always well done. Acting is always superb. The season offers an excellent variety. A bonus is their very user friendly box office.

If you like the theatre, this is an awesome local venue. Great actors and a really nice venue serving (actually) good cocktails and snacks. Go early so you get parking . They really do not do late seating (I've experienced it myself!(
