We try to see at least three shows at the Asolo during the winter when we are in Sarasota. We are always pleased. The theatre is lovely and well maintained and the staff is very helpful. We are usually very happy with the productions.

My wife and I have been enjoying productions at the Asolo for years during our retreat from the winter storms up north. Some productions have been better than others but they were all worth the price of admission. Look into the multiple production package if you have the time.

We saw the show, sort of a musical biography, of Woody Guthrie. This is a nice theater, good acoustics and sight-lines even for short little me. Volunteers are pleasant and helpful.

My friend and I thought this show was even better than last year. Kirk Marsh was a great clown, very original, the 13 year old Sebastian St. Jules was great doing his juggling act, the Alvarex Family astounded us all on their teeterboard, Dolla Jacobs may be famous, but her act was not quite as exceptional as last year, a...

We attend most Broadway plays and were a little reluctant to try this theatre when on vacation. We were pleasantly surprised. All of us enjoyed the show and the cast was truly of professional calibre. Seats were comfortable and there are good sigh lines and sound. If in that area, check it out.

We have lived here for ten years & just discovered this gem, silly us. We have seen four plays this year & they have all been excellent!! Would definitely recommend a visit. Well worth it.

We come to the Asolo and find something enjoyable to see with each visit. This time is was one of the student-repertory pieces, [Name of Show]. The Student-Rep takes place in the intimate little theatre adjacent to the historic Asolo...5th row back feels like the actors are talking directly to YOU! Fully wheelchair accessible. They offer wine and I think... More

The Asolo Repertory Theatre in Sarasota, Florida has not only an appealing theater venue but also offers some great drama and musical selections during its theater season. I had the opportunity to attend two of the 2014-2015 season offerings: "Both Your Houses," which is play about the workings of the House Appropiations Committee in Washington D.C. relative to ethics and...

We were very pleasantly entertained today at this showing of Good People. There was a preview they called The Scoop hosted by Peggy Roeder of the cast that was excellent. We got to meet this seasoned actress and that made the play so much better. Nice job Peggy
