We are frequent visitors to this venue and have seldom been disappointed. High quality productions with beautiful costumes and precise diction make Shakespeare accessible. The actors are excellent and manage to convey as much with body language and expression as with the words of "The Bard." The Green Show, play orientations and other extra lectures and tours, as well as... More

saw Measure for Measure---i admit not being a Shakespeare fan, so the show itself certainly wasn't memorable for myself, but the atmosphere is still worth the price of a ticket

We saw two plays in this theater and loved our experience with both. One was a serious historical drama and the other a light comedy. The theater design allowed the audience and actors to interact. We had "premier" seats for one performance and the last row up top for the other. We bought our tickets late for the "up top"... More

I chose plays in this theatre as this theatre will be closed after the 2015 season. A new building is being constructed and will replace this theatre.

Experience Shakespeare in one of the most authentic period theatres in the world. Plays are very well produced. There are also seminars and other events that are put on in the venue. Concessions are available within 20 yards if you need a coffee or a snack.

Great show. I love this theatre. And, the shows are always well done. One more year in the Adams, and they will have a new outdoor theatre available and the Adams will be - well they don't know yet. I have been here several years since I was young, and still love it.

This intimate theater is a fun outdoor experience with a Green Show leading up to the play. Adams is being replaced with a new theater, so don't miss out on experiencing the original.

The Adams is first choice on warm summer evenings. This year Comedy of Errors is an outstanding performance, best of all 6 plays for me.

This small outdoor theater on the SUU campus is modeled after the original Globe, but lacking the standing-room area in front of the stage for the lower classes. The casts, the staff, and the volunteers are uniformly excellent. Each play has an alternate indoor venue should the weather prove to be a problem, but we've never had anything but excellent... More
