About The Old Globe, San Diego

The Old Globe theatre which is built around the same architectural structure as the Globe theatre in London, is an important cultural landmark in San diego.

This beautiful theatre is an active center for the arts. The open, simple and elegant structure helps make the theatre environment very inviting and lively. With over 15 annual productions in their summer season, it makes a lot of sense to actually watch a play here in order to take in this wonderful atmosphere. There are three smaller venues within the complex where the plays are held.

Located between the San Diego Museum of Art and San Diego Museum of Man, the place is sure to be a very interesting site to at least pass by from.

  • I've seen two plays at The Old Globe, How the Grinch Stole Christmas (Dec 2017) and The Importance of Being Earnest (Feb 2018), and I thoroughly enjoyed both! The tickets were reasonably priced, I saw the Importance of Being Earnest for only $30! I just saw The Importance of Being Earnest on Valentine's Day. The set was so pretty, my date and I both enjoyed the vibrant colors. The play was hilarious and I thought the cast did an amazing job. The acting was fantastic! I love going to Balboa Park and The Old Globe is a wonderful theatre there. The theatre is beautiful and charming and a great way to spend an evening.

  • This is a fun place to see a play or musical. Enjoy eating at Prado's before or after. There are many other great restaurants close by also to enjoy. Mr. A's is my favorite. Tell them you are going to The Globe and they will get you out on time.

  • The Old Globe is a classic landmark in San Diego! Fun theatre to see a show, either play or musical! I am so lucky to be able to see around 3 shows yearly. I look forward for more to come! No bad seats as the theater is a half round!

  • I don't think I will be going again. The play was amazing, actors and actresses were talented. However, I overheard the staff saying "Couple wants to move, the lady next to them is wearing too much perfume." Only to find out it was me. Which I would have GLADY got up to accommodate the couple next to me had someone SAID SOMETHING to me. I did not know the seats were so close. Had I known, I wouldn't have wore any type fragrance! Instead I had to over hear the couple awkwardly try switch seats with other people. When he found a seat he RUDELY climbed over the seats and almost fell on the gentleman in front of him. Then the couple then just laughed.

  • There is very little parking. Be ready to walk and bring comfortable shoes. If you are coming for a play, allow plenty of time.
