I have seen several Shakespeare plays and none amounted to the quality here - the acting was superb!

Top knotch plays. We saw Mary Stuart and Measure for Measure. We were warned away from Waiting for Godot (a true stinker due to its subject matter and constant depressing themes). People we talked to said they walked out of Godot half way thru - they had had enough.
Stratford and environs are great. The river boat ride was fun for a tour. However the rental fee for bikes is way above what should be charged and we passed on that.

My husband and I attended the Saturday afternoon performance of Fiddler, This was our first show at Stratford, and even though the seats were a little uncomfortable we loved the music, the story and the dancing. We look forward to returning. We went for a walk along the river, and briefly visited the art show in the park. I hope to stay overnight the next time we go, because we love Stratford and would like to spend more time there.

The music and the story brought a joyful tear to our eyes. The cast was marvellous, the stage and seats were perfect. Please see it for your self.

Excellent! And love the Tom Patterson Theater. Staging was perfect. So wonderful to see a play with such strong female characters. Seana McKenna and Lucy Peacock were amazing. Kudos to all the cast and crew.
