When is a park more than a park? When it houses the lion’s share of the cultural and entertainment attractions of the city. That is what Balboa Park offers, and the noted Old Globe Theater resides here. Built to resemble Shakespeare’s Globe Theater from the south bank of London, the San Diego Old Globe Theater is an internationally acclaimed, Tony award winning theater, hosting a year-round season of 15 plays on three stages, including the highly regarded Shakespeare Festival. Numerous Broadway plays start and stop here, at this icon of theater production. Easily one of the best representations of the the craft on the west coast, the Old Globe Theater is a must for any theater lover.
The Old Globe Theater is located right off El Prado in Balboa Park, between the San Diego Museum of Art and the Museum of Man. Phone: (619) 23-GLOBE (234-5623)
