We say "Waiting for Godot" and "Mary Stuart" at the Tom Patterson this year. Both were beautifully done.

“Great Sheakspear stage”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We saw Cymbeline. I was unimpressed with outdoor look (like ice arena next door), but loved decorations inside.
Small bathrooms & tiny snack stand.

“Thrust Stage”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

This venue provides theatre experiences with audience on three sides. "Waiting for Godot", "Measure for Measure", and "Mary Stuart" showed the flexibility of the space to accomodate modern and classical theatre. It also provided an intimate setting for the conversations between audience and presenters during the morning talks. We like this space.

Superb productions, as always. We have been attending the Stratford Festival for over40 years and have never been disappointed in the quality of the theatre - a world class repertory company.
