We come to the Shakespeare Festival every year, and it does not disappoint. Last year and this year there have been Marx brother re-makes that are SO MUCH fun!

The Shakespeare plays and others were excellent and hiking on the Creek to Crest Trail was beautiful. Good restaurants.

Give yourself plenty of time to dine beforehand if going to one of the local restaurants, arriving no later than 6:00 to avoid a wait. Or, perhaps grab some picnic items from the nearby Ashland Food Co-Op, at Market of Choice, or grab a sammich from Sammich down the... More

More than just Shakespearean plays, a feast of options all combined with the joy of Ashland. Come witness one of America's premiere festivals all set in the beautiful Rogue Valley.

Let's put it this way: OSF is why I moved to Ashland from the Bay Area. Does that make it clear? 2013: Everything (so far) is good. "Shrew", with its modern setting (that happens to be authentic, by a strange twist) is one of the stand-outs. Love the energy, the comedy, and the modern take on the obedience story. "Lear"... More

Saw Cocoanuts--charming, loads of fun. One thing a bit inconvenient about Angus Bowmer Theater is that their are no center isles, everyone must come and go from either side.

I went to see this Shakespearean play dragging and kicking. My Shakespearean memories from school left me with what I assumed was very little understanding of the "spoken words" at the age of 16 - however now at the age of 54 either the production was either extremely clever at portraying the meaning of the story or I have finally...

My spring trip to Ashland yielded another great experience. I saw three plays - The Tempest, The Sign in Sydney Brustien"s Window, and Comedy of Errors. All thought provoking, well-acted and entertaining. My favorite - Sydney. Most fun - Comedy.
