We came to watch Julius Caesar which was acted by 7 brilliant actors who managed to look like 15 different actors. Mark Anthony's speech was fantastic. I took two teenagers who whilst not enthralled, did enjoy themselves and I thought it was marvelous. It is a small theatre so not a bad seat in the house. I would recommend eating... More

We saw the play The True Story of the Three Little Pigs and it was very entertaining. We were on Spring Break and my child's school requires cultural events to be turned in. I took advantage of the fact that we would be traveling and I am so glad I came across this event and that it was during our... More

The play acting was very good; we saw Pluto. The building houses more than one theater and it is pretty impressive. My only complaint is that there is a strong smell of mold or mildew in the theater itself which nearly took my breath away. I don't know if it is permanent or associated with some of the set but...

We attend all the performances at the Orlando Shakespeare theater that we can make. The acting is terrific and they take on different ad unusual performances. They just completed Nicholas Nickleby and even with as long as it was-I hated to see it end. Get a ticket-you will not be disappointed.

Wow, the “Nicholas Nickleby” - Part 2 show was spectacular. I just wish we had been able to see Part I, not that it made this show any less great. It just took us a few minutes to understand what was going on. This is like theater in the round. The actors were all super. They showed lots of enthusiasm.... More

Had not been to the Orlando Shakespeare Theater in a while and was amazed to see the transformation. The lobby is very large and has a very nice gift shop, appropriately 'artsy' decor, and sells snacks, wine and beer prior to the show and during intermission. In fact, you can pre-order your drink and it will be waiting for you... More

We went to a friend's original play at the Orlando Shakespeare Theater and was so surprised that we had not been there often. The parking is easy, the facility well run and the multiple theaters were easy to find, as were the bathrooms. We will be back again often in 2014!

We went to the one man show that was Dracula for Halloween. What an amazing performance, the set was impressive and even the bar staff were very nice.
