In full disclosure, I am a volunteer usher and see shows for free currently. Having said that, we have also paid to see shows in the past. Affiliated with UNC-Chapel Hill's Drama Department but is more of a professional theatre group with a combination of Actors' Equity professors, visiting actors, and graduate students (with a few undergrads in the mix...

My husband and I buy full season tickets every season for over a decade. The seating has been renovated over the years and is usually bearable for the length of the show. All seats in the small theatre have great views. In the large theatre there are some bad seats due to the theatre in the round. Some seats would... More

I enjoyed the Sunday matinee performance. I had never seen it, either in a play or in a movie. I go for the live action acting, but the sets and lighting never disappoint. Tickets to live performances are always more than for a streaming or movie, but always worth it.

We've had season tickets to Playmakers for years and years. Rarely, very rarely are we disappointed with their productions. So glad this is a part of our community!

This was our second visit to PlayMakers, and we were again pleased. This time we saw their production of Miller's adaptation of Ibsen's "Enemy of the People." Originally written over 130 years ago, it is still so relevant today. We really enjoyed this wonderful and creative production. The theater itself has a thrust stage so there are seats on three...

Saw "Into the Woods" recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. Quality on the same level as the professional shows at DPAC at a smaller, more intimate setting. Seating arranged so no bad seat in the house. And free parking on a Saturday night in the deck!!

This theater offers truly wonderful performances that are priced just right. The caliber of the productions are professional, outstanding and diverse. The theater is located scenically on UNC Campus. The theaters are of a more intimate size and several theater styles. Great / close viewing no matter where you are seated.

I have had season tickets to Playmakers for over 10 years. Most of the plays have been at least very good but when they fail they fail big time. The sound system is very good with assisted hearing devices available for individuals who have a hard time hearing. The seats are comfortable for 90 minutes or so. If the plays... More

As a subscriber, I visit through the season. Productions are beautifully done, with great direction, sometimes outstanding acting. Naturally, some shows are more to one's liking than others, but performances are usually incredibly professional - acting, sets, and costumes.

PlayMakers selects plays that are not your typical "safe" entertainment. During our first year here we subscribed to a full season of PlayMakers. We thoroughly enjoyed some, were shocked by some, and even wished we were at home with others. This is not a knock on them but will hopefully give the reviewer an understanding of the broad reach of... More
