Modeled after the Globe Theatre near London, this is probably the closest replica of the original Globe Theatre that exists anywhere in the world. Even the Royal Shakespeare Company from England came here to do a TV special on this theater. It is an amazing place. Sitting here and watching Shakespeare in the evening it's something we've been doing for... More

Watching plays in this theatre makes me feel like we really are in the times of Shakespeare. I can't think of a better place to watch Shakespeare, unless it starts raining... and they make you go inside... and then it stops raining... and you go back outside... and the play takes an extra hour and a half...:)

Thanks for your review. We are very excited for our new Engelstad Shakespeare Theater will afford more rain covering for both the actors and audience during those rare summer evening thunderstorms. More

Attending the Shakespeare Festival is my favorite addictive habit. Everything about the Shakespeare Festival is well done - Orientation, Green Show, productions, additional lectures, workshops, hosts and hostesses, outdoor flags and lights and flowers, everything. Nothing is mediocre. Every detail is perfected. I recommend this to everyone.

We love attending plays at this authentic theater and look forward to the new Shakespeare theater. We are VERY disappointed that they are not planning on a retractable room for the new theater.

We are also very disappointed that the roof is not in the current design, but we have not given up on it. Thanks for letting us know how important it is to you. More

I really liked the feel of being in a real Shakespearean Theater. The stage is visible from everywhere I have sat. Sometimes it's a little cold though, since it is outside, so bring a jacket.

This venue is gaining worldwide recognition for the quality of it's productions and it is easy to see why. There has been much work and effort into making this a quality destination. Ticket prices can be seen at the website but range from about $50 and up, though they do have 2 for one performances, senior discounts and more. Currently... More

Thanks for your comments. We are really excited about the new Beverley Taylor Sorenson Center for the Arts, which you mentioned. It is slated to be ready to go for our 2016 season, and it will include a new outdoor Shakespearean theater, SUMA (the Southern Utah Museum of Art), and a smaller performance space, in addition to the current Randall...

This theater is an open-air theater on SUU's campus. It's beautiful, and every seat in there is a good seat. It's fun to see a Shakespeare play in general, but it's an experience to see Shakespeare's plays in a replica theater. Make sure to check the weather and dress appropriately.

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
