Ive been to Dobama twice and thought both productions I attended were very high-quality. The actors and actresses here are solid. They mold themselves well into their characters. The facility itself is beautiful and has seating that allows each person to have a very good view. When Ive visited bigger theatres, Ive missed the great seating and more intimate environment that Dobama offers, although I like the larger venues too. The staff here is quite nice, as well. This is an A+ place all the way around. The only thing that could be considered even the least bit negative about the two performances I attended was that the endings were a bit difficult for me to understand. However, Im sure there are others who did not feel that way. This is definitely a good place to try, and Ive always left happy.
I saw Peter and the Starcatcher here with my partner and her parents and really enjoyed myself. The theater is a conversion of an old swimming pool and as such the space is quirky and intimate. Seating wraps around three sides of the stage. Although the performance was arranged to be best viewed from the front it was obvious that thought had been put into making sure it was viewable from all seats. This is quality local theater done right.
The Dobama Theatre provides a smaller, more intimate space that enriches the theatrical experience by bringing the actors closer to the audience by surrounding the stage on three sides. Not a bad seat in the house.
Great place under the artistic direction of Nathan Motta. They have contributed a lot to the city, especially its artist, becoming an equity theater and doing really thought-provoking work.
Totally professional acting, well-run and managed, excellent venue and easily accessible. I also LOVE the comment board. Really thought-provoking productions in very good taste.
