My first visit to Yale Rep was to see Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour, part of the Arts and Ideas Festival. The show was brilliant! I was so glad I went. The place itself was nice. The staff/festival volunteers were friendly and helpful. The stage and theater are small and intimate, which I found to be cozy and comfortable.

The Yale Rep Theatre is a quaint, little theatre. I have enjoyed several of Yale's productions in this facility and have always had good experiences.

This theatre shares honors with the other local regional theatre (Long Wharf Theatre) for being one of the outstanding regional theatre in America. With excellent casts, directors, technicians, dramaturgs - and the entire drama school of Yale - available, I've never seen a play that wasn't first class. I've seen plays that I didn't particularly CARE for - but that's... More

It was my first visit to the Yale Repertory Theatre and was very impressed. The theatre is a smaller size with great views from all seats. Seats are tiered well and comfortable. Saw an original play "Ermeni," by Eric Sirakian. It was well done! The actors were special and engaged the audience continuosly. Would recommmend the theatre and this play... More

We returned to the Rep last night for the first time since law school years to see Familiar, which is making its world premier there. The play is terrific and I predict it will make its way to Broadway. The Rep remains one of the best places in America to see real theater. And with the ease of MetroNorth and... More

We do not live in New Haven. We travel 2.5 hours to go to theater at Yale Rep and, of course, need to stay overnight. It's worth it. This is the program that spawned many wonderful actors and actresses, notably Meryl Streep. The plays run the gamut of genres. Under Bundy's leadership, there is always something new and creative: the... More

Serious acting. Audience filled with up-and-coming actors. This is theatre. I saw a lean production of a play (again, ALL MY SONS by Arthur Miller) and it was a great improvement over the movie version with Edward G. Robinson.

Actually attended a couple of shows put on by the Yale drama department and thought the acoustics and staging was excellent in both cases. An excellent place is see a show.

Did not see a play this time, but just being there to see it again was nice. I love the theta hand was a actor for a while and a stage hand as well for some time so just seeing it after all these years was like saying hello to a old friend.

This was my first visit to this church converted to a theater, and I enjoyed it. I'm assuming there are accessible entrances, but there were a number of stairs, and finding the restrooms was an adventure. Went to see Arguendo as part of the International Festival of Arts and Ideas, and truly enjoyed it. Hope to return soon.
