Saw Romeo and Juliet a while ago. Found this decent but not Great! The sun was burning me and since it was outside there was a bee by me during all of the performance which captured my attention .

Love this place! Top notch talent with a little not-so-subtle political agenda (in keeping with its history as an oasis from the Blacklist of the McCarthy era. A fabulous way to enjoy both the wildness and the artistry of Topanga at the same time!

Attended a wedding ceremony at this location. Incredibly unique and beautiful. It was fantastic to feel like you are in the middle of nature while you watch a couple get married. Lots of seating and shade.

A visit to Theatricum Botanicum on a warm summer night is lovely. It's a beautiful outdoors amphitheater with the lighted towering oak trees as the stage's backdrop. Take a sweater. They provide cushions. The play "Other Desert Cities" did not hold our interest. The only...More

The plays this place puts on are absolutely wonderful! Most of them are Shakespeare's, but there are some others. They also have hilarious improvs worth seeing. The main stage is outdoors and shaded by Topanga's beautiful oaks. The experience is one you will never forget.

This venue was impressive in that it is versatile and in a beautiful setting. The history (if you are old enough to remember the "Walton's" TV show) is certainly as interesting as the place itself. With the lack of rain, be advised that this is...More
