Great play and actors are top notch for small theater. All seats are good. Buy the cheapest and when the lights go out you can move to the front.

We saw Other Desert Cities here. The show was good but the setting was great. There are no bad seats in this small theater. Pay for the least expensive seats and you will see and hear just fine.

We saw 'other Desert Cities' on its last night. A very well produced show. The players were as talented as expected. The theater is a bit of a 'throwback' but well kept and the staff helpful. Drinks and snacks are server and you may take your drinks into the theater. There are plentiful seats and tables in the lobby areas.... More

The Asolo is a professional repertory theater. Many productions are in rep so it is not easy to give a review of a single play since some are good and some so so. However, the theater is a throwback to a different era and it is worth seeing and attending a performance.

The Asolo is a beautifully restored classic theatre maintained by Florida State University. It has a long term lease arrangement with the Asolo Reparatory Theatre group so ongoing high quality performances are regularly available. The site lines are very good, seats comfortable with ample leg room, and the fine architectural finishes a delight to view.
