The internationally-acclaimed, Tony Award-winning Old Globe is one of the most renowned regional theaters in the country, and has stood as San Diego’s flagship arts institution for over 70 years.

The Old Globe produces a year-round season of 15 plays and musicals on its three stages, including its highly-regarded Shakespeare festival. The Globe has become a gathering place for leading theater artists from around the world, such as Tom Stoppard, Daniel Sullivan, and Chita Rivera, among many others. Numerous Broadway-bound premieres and revivals, such as "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels," "The Full Monty," and "Damn Yankees" have been developed at The Old Globe and have gone on to enjoy highly successful runs in New York and at regional theaters across the country.

The Old Globe is located in Balboa Park, San Diego's cultural treasure. Our theaters are located right off El Prado, between the San Diego Museum of Art and the Museum of Man.
