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 theatre. As a city that has produced and sent more shows to Broadway than any other city in America, San Diego boasts over 150 stages including two Tony® Award-winning theatres, that captivate audiences season after season with unforgettable performances.

Many shows are available at half-price through San Diego's answer to New York's TKTS booth, ARTS TIX, located at Horton Plaza.
 
San Diego’s theatre scene is one of the most prolific, inspiring, cutting edge and creative on the west coast. From comedy to musicals, traditional to contemporary, experimental to Shakespeare, it’s easy to find a show of any kind. So go ahead, put some drama into your San Diego trip, and get ready to be dazzled!
