Broadway Meets the West Coast

Whether you call it “Broadway-West” or the “West Coast's West End,” San Diego has earned its reputation as a premiere destination for theater.  In fact, San Diego has produced and sent more shows to Broadway than any other city in America. The hit musical “Jersey Boys,” which won multiple Tony Awards and has been on Broadway since 2005, came to life on a stage at the La Jolla Playhouse. It’s exciting to think that you could see a show while visiting this city, and then see it in Broadway lights in the years to come.

There are over 150 stages here - including two Tony® Award-winning theaters - where audiences can experience the immense pleasures of live performance. With genres as diverse as the venues, on any night, you could choose between a rollicking musical, a thought-provoking drama, a witty comedy, or a bold, challenging work in an intimate setting. There’s something for every visitor in this theatrically-rich city.

Many shows are available at half-price through San Diego's answer to New York's TKTS booth: ARTS TIX. You can order tickets online at sdartstix.com or visit the box office which is conveniently located downtown at Horton Plaza.

Whether it’s the summer outdoor Shakespeare festival in beautiful Balboa Park, a sing-along musical at downtown’s Lamb’s Players, or a daring drama at the La Jolla Playhouse, put some drama into your San Diego trip, and get ready to be dazzled!
