We enjoy going to the La Jolla Playhouse. It is such an intimate venue with some exceptional performances. Tonight we saw the closing performance of "Escape to Margaritaville". We loved it! The songs, actors, staging... The whole experience was so well done.

The theater is well laid out and not a bad seat in the house. The play was great. A must see if you are a Jimmy Buffet fan. The choreography was great along with the cast. Very talented performers and entertaining.

Here to see Escape to Margaritaville. Not a bad seat in the house. Acoustics are pretty good. Great set up for this show. Parking is better than most venues. Easy to get in and out. Expensive venue though.

I might be a tiny bit biased because it's a sweet hometown venue. Regardless of how lucky we are to have the Playhouse, I think any Patron of the Theatre Arts will love and enjoy a performance here. Small and cozy, classy, comfortable, and easily...More
