If you are into shakespeare, there is no where better

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.

Showcasing new American Works (American Nights, Ruined), classic American plays and of course, works of the Bard in a variety of indoor and outdoor venues, treat yourself to one of the week or weekend long immersions excursions, where you can see 5 plays in 3 days (or some variant), tour back stage and have an artist talk.

The Shakespeare Festival, by name, is a toy shop for big children who love theater. Besides Shakespeare in the round (outdoors), there are multiple venues with multiple kinds of plays. Actors often participate in multiple plays so, after 3 or 4 performances, you feel like you have been witnessing an extended family of actors all working together to put on... More

Have been to theaters in San Francisco, LA, NYC, DC, Vienna, Munich, Berlin and London. This is the best and they take the best from Broadway. So well endowed, they can pay for the best playwrites to premier the most outstanding new plays anywhere. Every play has at least one dramaturg, not shared by other productions. Wonderful directors and very... More
