the plays are of a high caliper. The ballet is world class. I go for the subscription every year as most of the plays I enjoy.

I had the good fortune of getting some of the last tickets for the last performance of the Summer Circus Spectacular while visiting Sarasota a few weeks ago. This beautiful theater was apparently moved to the area from Italy and is lovely. It is small, but if you consider the period and where it came from it makes perfect sense... More

This is a repitory theater so you can see more than one play on a weekend or week visit. The actors range in experience and compliment each other. The focus shifts from comedy to drama to historical to current topics. Put on your thinking cap and listen well.

On the one day you'd expect it to rain we had theater tickets, which worked out amazing, this theater is absolutely beautiful we saw Vanya & Sania, Masha & Spike, it was a great play, the actors really lived up to the characters they played and the personalities that went with them... it was a great performance, made our trip...

Went to the 4 baritones. Simply delightful. I wouldn't have thought I would have enjoyed the performance as much as I did but I would encourage anyone to see the performances here. Small enough theatre to enjoy being very close to the performers along with top notch performers. A truly enjoyable experience.

First one was so enjoyable with 3 Baritones singing from classical to more recent. Beautiful voices and wonderful story tellers Next we saw a one woman show I laughed and lost and made spagetti. Lots of fun to watch this poignant and funny one woman show.

By sister and I recently went to the production "I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti" - it was absolutely wonderful! Ms. Lavecchia did a fantastic job and kept us laughing and recalling our own "dating days" back in the 60's, 70's. I hate to cook but she made it look so easy that I actually made "her recipe" this... More

While in Sarasota for the first (but not last) time we tried to experience all that we had read about. The Asolo Theater was stunning. We east coasters think our theater is great, and it is. However the Asolo is gorgeous to look at and directed by first class talent that rivals the best. We attended the" Barritones Unbound" an... More
