International City Theatre Reviews & Ratings
Lovely Thatre beautifully decorated. Excellent friendly staff. Located in the Long Beach convention Center. They do put on excellent plays. They serve snacks and cocktails. If you subscribe they do have money saving. Packages. Check it out if you have the opportunity.
The theater itself is very nice. The production that I saw was good but not great. Parking is ridiculously overpriced. A season subscription is expensive and provides little overall discount (except the insane parking fee) and forces you to buy tickets for shows that you mostly likely have no interest in.
Great shows, great venue, love caryn, Denis et al who make it all happen at ICT!
Viewing the International City Theatre's (ICT) current presentation of "The Price", was my first time seeing Arthur Miller's, impactful family story. It all takes place in an attic, as two brothers, Victor and Walter Franz and Victor's wife Esther, get ready to sell off and say goodbye to their parent's furniture, full of haunted recollections. The furniture is an evocative metaphor for the scarred remnants of the choices the characters made in their lives. The story hinges on an intuitive furniture dealer, Gregory Solomon who's been contracted to access the value of the contents. I was emotionally engaged from the moment the play began. Each actor's performance was superbly natural. The direction was on point. The set design was visually stimulating. The Beverly O'Neill Theater is a hidden gem at the Long Beach Performing Arts Center. ICT is a fully professional company. A must-see. I plan to see it again and bring friends. Now playing.
We have loved ICT Theater in the past. Absolutely every play was spot on. But WritersBlock was a definite C. So disappointed. We still love this theater but hope the remaining productions bring us back for another season.
