We were right on the end where the mezzanine wraps around and is close to the stage. So, in effect, we were side ways to stage. That is to be expected and is very clear... More

The director was kind enough to tell us it's history and show us pictures of the interiro. They were rehearsing and we couldn't go inside but would have loved to.

I visited the theatre in the month of November and had the pleasure of sitting on the front row. The venue was impressive and the play did not disappoint. The actors, although students, delivered a believable and realistic portrayal. I highly recommend this venue for an evening of theatre.

Asolo Theater is perfect setting to experience Baritones Unbound. Excellent acoustics, comfortable seating, intimate eco and thoroughly entertaining. While vacationing at Sarasota's amazing key beaches, the Asolo is a delightful evening activity. A favorite of locals and snow birds alike.

Theater very well managed for ticketing and shows have been great. We purchase season tickets each year and love the selections we have been seeing. It's as good as broadway and at times shows previewed here prior to Broadway. Don't pass this one up.

It's small and intimate but big enough to feel like a grand theater! They offer great packages for shows and multiple showings! The seats are a little small so just be aware of that fact.
