The Tapia theater is an icon. I wish more english speaking activities were available there, especially during the high season. It is a lovely theater with great acoustics.

Closed for repairs, for various years, it was the only theater venue for plays in Old San Juan. Is a small theater in comparison to others in the world, but magnificent and full of history.

It's been a while since I've been, but I remeber this theater as one of my favorites. My favorite thing has to be the seating arrangements. No matter where you are in the theater you feel inmersed in the play. Very pintoresque too, I love it!

We went to Teatro Tapia to enjoy "Angels in America" performance and it was a great experience. The theater is amazing, not to big but very nice place to enjoy it.

Wow, it's a beautiful building tha'll take you back in time. There isn't a bad seat in the building and the architecture is rich. Even the restrooms are lovely. There's a "wall mounted museum" displaying various costumes, artifacts and historical information about the theater and it's performers.
