“Shaw Festival”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2014

We saw three plays and all of them were excellent!!! The theaters are small so all seats were good; the plays were humorous and the stage sets were very well done!

“Wonderful Theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2014

Just saw "When We Were Married". An excellent comedy extremely well presented.
As always in Niagara-on-the-Lake, parking is an issue.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014

There's a real buzz around the Shaw festival. Go to the main theatre early in the morning if you want tickets for that day. We were successful. There are three theatre locations showing Shaw Festival plays though they are not exclusively Shaw plays but showcase some upcoming writers too.
