I have been going to performances here for over ten years and I have not seen one play that I was disappointed in. The plays are well directed and the Broadway quality of the actors with out the high price makes it a real value. This is not to overlook the stage designs and the friendly staff. If you have...

Saw Peter and the Starcatcher. Booked tickets well in advance online. Had no idea in advance what the show was like. The theatre building is fantastic. Lots of free parking (we had no trouble getting a spot since there was not much on when we visited). The design of the theatre is amazing ... there is absolutely no bad seat.... More

Small, cozy theatre. Not a bad seat in the house!! The full stage is visible to everyone. We attend performances here regularly and they always put on a spectacular show!

Don't let the name fool you. It's not just Shakespeare they perform here and, in fact, most performances are not. This is a small theatre and has the feel of local theatre. There are no bad seats and is cozy enough that you feel up close to the action. Parking wasn't a problem as there is a large lot in... More

After seeing a few shows at Orlando Shakes, my husband and I so loved it that we are now season subscribers. What a great organization! The venue itself is so versatile, with 4 different performance spaces. If you see the small, intimate spaces, you might not expect performances on the level of what comes out of Orlando Shakes, but let... More

Wow! I wasn't expecting that. Bakersfield Mist is a two person, one act play that I feel extremely lucky to have seen tonight. It is showing at the Orlando Shakespeare theatre, a very small intimate theatre. The play is witty and clever taking you through a range of emotions you don't expect. Both actors did it justice. Bravo.

Intimate yet great seats with excellent viewing. Theatre material entertaining and the actors are professional and magnificent. Just saw Spamalot and thoroughly enjoyed it. Time very well spent with lots of belly laughs! Go and have a great time! You will not be disappointed. And valet parking too!

We went here to see Spam-A-Lot and were very happy with the facility which (as with most Shakespearian theaters is in the round. It's small and comfortable and there are no bad seats. The play was enjoyable and the Intermission area includes drinks and food. Large bathrooms cut down on lines and the staff were all very attentive and actually... More

This was a fun treat! Very impressed with the quality of production in such a small theatre. We were on the 3rd row and the actors were literally about 5 feet away from us! It was cool because the orchestra was actually behind the stage-allowing for us to be so close! Thoroughly enjoyed it!

We saw Spamalot at the theater and thought both the acting and the use of the space was fantastic. I highly recommend catching a performance here if you can.
