South Coast Repertory is a theater in Costa Mesa, across the street from South Coast Plaza but nowhere near the same atmosphere or mindset. The best theater in OC, hands down. Provocative shows like the multi-layered conflict between Midwestern creationism and bicoastal liberal science in How the World Began and the profanity-laden Elemeno Pea really are a nice counter to the high-brow, sophisticated setting of the South Coast Rep. It would be super easy for SCR to play it safe and be totally vanilla, but they don’t, and we love them for it. It's also really affordable for students. Between $5 drinks, and free parking across the bridge at South Coast Plaza (don't be lazy), its mind blowing that a night out with professional live theater can be cheaper than a boring movie date. One of the greatest regional theaters in the United States, and always cognizant of reaching out to all of Orange County, not just the blue hairs.
