Watched "Much Ado About Nothing" this time and it was fabulous! Loved the stage treatment, the spontaneous, polished actors and the chemistry between them. I even loved the gift shop near the theatre (always a guilty pleasure!). The next play I hope to see is "Pericles", not for the storyline but for the production..

Being as the majority of play goers probably come from the Portland area it is very disappointing to have so few play options that are actually Shakespeare. Especially in the outdoor Elizabethan Theater. While the quality is great, and entertaining, many of us prefer to see Shakespeare. It is why we go to Ashland!

This is the best performance of this musical I've ever seen. Several numbers are simply "show stoppers". I haven't so delighted with a musical in a long time & highly recommend getting tickets while you can! The G&D show tunes are still dancing through my head. With so many stellar performances, it's unfair to mention just one or two. The... More

Guys andDols was fun butter dancing is a bit weak. Much ado about nothing was good until the last act which had a dour overtone. Still... More

Been to OSF a number of times, never a dull performance, never a dull moment. Definitely an NPR style crowd, so don't expect anything too lively except the actors.

One of the great attractions of this picturesque town. Lot of plays to choose from. The price can be high but it is well worth it.

My husband and I have been attending 8 or 9 plays of Oregon Shakspeare Festival's 11 play season for several years now. We make two trips each year staying 3-4 days each trip. One in the spring and again in the summer. We are always impressed with OSF's creativity, energy and talent. No matter how many times we have seen... More

Since we live in Ashland, we have the opportunity to go to the plays every year. We have great directors! Shakespeare plays are always interesting and different in some way to make they enjoyable year after year. The contemporary plays are equally good. Every year we have sold out plays for good reason!

OSF continues to produce incredible plays that are refreshing, interesting and, in many cases, taking a new and fresh twist.
