We saw three plays. The first was Amadeus. David Ivers who played Solieri was so mesmerizing and was totally wonderful. The second was Charleys Aunt, and was hilarious. The third was South Pacific and was charming and the voices were terrific. All in all three wonderful shows. If you're not into Shakespeare, check out the other options. Plus the Greenshow... More

I have been attending the Utah Shakespeare Festival nearly every year since 2002. The productions are of the highest quality. Highly recommend.

The Utah Shakespeare Festival is a yearly outing for us. This year we enjoyed a matinee performance, South Pacific. Not all of the plays are Shakespeare, obviously! The campus is beautiful. There is some construction being done on the campus but it did not interfere with parking/walking. You never go hungry in Utah. Treat yourself to one of the tarts... More

We attended two performances while at the Utah Shakespeare Festival, i.e., Amadeus and Henry IV (Part 2). Both had outstanding actors who give 100+ percent in their roles. The venues were different and both were perfect for their specific show. The Randall Jones Theatre is beautiful and worth the price of admission while the outdoor theatre was reminiscent of London's... More

We have been coming to the Utah Shakespeare festival for over 20 years now. I see all of the plays every year. My teenage granddaughter calls it "the highlight of her year"! The plays are always professional and well done. We enjoy the green show. We enjoy Cedar city. Everything is great!

Have been attending the Festival since the late 1980s. The performance quality is always second to none. Looking forward to the new theater next year.

We saw Henry IV Part 2 and Taming of the Shrew. Both were excellent. This will be the last season for the old Adams theater but a replacement will be in operation next year. Do not miss The Green Show preceding evening performances. The enthusiasm as of the performers is contagious.

Saw all the plays and all were on a par, festival has matured and new facilities will only made the experience even better. Plan early, buy tickets at least a year in advance to get the seats you want although all are good

We have been coming to the Utah Shakespearean Festival since 1996, so that may be all that needs to be said. But anyone contemplating coming here should know that not only are there great plays put on ... half are not Shakespearean, but that there are numerous opportunities for free seminars on staging and costumes and literary criticism and actors...

Thanks for your review and for mentioning the elements of a Festival experience: the plays (of course) in addition to costume seminars, actor seminars, props seminars, literary seminars, orientations, tours, and The Greenshow. Thanks for your years of support, and we'll see you next year! More

This year we only had time to attend one production at the Shakespeare Festival. South Pacific was outstanding! The cast sang well, the costuming was great and the scenery and props were excellent. I love South Pacific - I've seen it many times in many venues. This was one of the best.

So happy that you loved South Pacific. The performers are amazing, especially their voices. If you love musicals, we will have three of them in 2016: Mary Poppins, The Cocoanuts (based on the Marx brothers film), and Murder for Two (a musical mystery with two actors and a piano). Thanks for your support! More
