We loved the play we saw here and perhaps that biased our feelings about the theatre in a positive direction. It is conveniently located right off the 210 freeway and offers free parking in a large garage very close by. The theatre itself is horseshoe-shaped and medium-sized. While we sat close to the stage but on the side, we still... More

I have never been disappointed when I attended any production. They have a way of taking a time honored classic and re-creating it into a modern day revelation of what the author had tried to create. Passionate and explosive are the only words I can use to describe the energy of the performers. The visual effects are stunning and more... More

We went to support one of our friends who was in a production and this is how we discovered the theater in Pasadena. Of course, we went to support but were really taken aback by how fantastic a theater and theater company this was. Easily accessible on the metro Gold Line and plenty of parking in the Gold Line structure,... More

This wonderful theater is not know by many yet but it should be. It's a theater in the round with perfect view from any seat. If you're a first timer going to one of the Christmas performances to get totally immersed.Good acting, dancing sets...parking is behind in the metro parking structure. There are often discounted tickets online, making it a... More

This Shakespearean play was done in a modern setting and very simple mostly black costumes, by a relatively small company. It's a small theatre with seats in a semicircle, and the actors are often in the aisles or in a balcony space. It was among the best productions of Shakespeare I have ever seen. The company transported us to Ancient... More

Interesting seating arrangement put the audience right in the performance. We were able to see a limited performance which was entertaining, funny, theatrical and a nice operetta. The orchestra plays on stage as there is no orchestra pit, so it is a nice change. The story and characters were well performed; it held the interest of the audience and had... More

I've been a season holder on and off since they were housed at Cal State LA. Great performances in an intimate space. In all, this is one of my favorite theater experiences in the LA area and my husband and I will continue to review our season tickets each year.

We have loved this theatre company since their days I downtown Pasadena. Their new location is terrific. We have seen a lot of shows here and they are always of the highest, most professional and exhilarating quality.

Every time I am in Pasadena I try to go and see at least a play. It is a nice, small theater with sits surrounding (almost) the stage. In spite of being relatively new, it inherits a long tradition of the theather carrying the same name which for many years was hosted in a quite disrupted building downtown. Plays are... More

The Noise Within Theater is small and intimate, and the productions are consistently first-rate. They focus on classic repertoire; we've seen at least five plays there, and each one has been excellent. There's not a bad seat in the house, so lower price tickets are fine.
