Saw "Barbaque" here and laughed through most of it. All of the actors were phenomenal and we really enjoyed the production. The theater was nice and charming. Seats aren't all that comfortable but it didn't ruin the experience.

We have a subscription to the Geffen and we just saw Big Sky. It was an outstanding performance. Well written, engaging, entertaining and poignant all at the same time. The casting was spot on and the cast's performance was engaging. Definitely worth attending.

I've seen other plays here but never a magic show The theater is intimate and every seat is a good seat The parking garage close by was convenient

The Geffen provides a Broadway experience without going to New York. Sometimes there are famous actors and actresses from film and television, but sometimes the unknowns will provide the most memorable experience. I love this theater!
