You have to love Florida when going out with an elderly family member. One of the greeters took my mom into the lobby and got her comfortably seated while I went to the will call to pick up the tickets. The cast was huge and the members were mostly equity. A few real stand outs. Great site lines despite a seat near the back and on the sides. While worth the effort.

This production brought the Broadway Tony winner to Sarasota. Direction, acting, music,costumes, set design were the best.A talented cast brought tears,laughter and an awareness of the bravery of a few .A masterpiece.

I love the Asolo especially when they do a Shakespeare adaptation but it can be expensive. But great for a special night out.

Penny and I just saw "1776-The Musical" and once again we had a wonderful time at a sensational venue. The Asolo Theatre itself was transplanted from Scotland and reconstructed here. The Repertory company is consistantly of the highest caliber. While a show might rarely not be to our taste, it will always be superbly acted and directed. The sets and costumes are great too. You can pay 2,3,4 times more but not get the quality that is here.

In the same building and sharing the facility is the Cook Theatre, a training venue for the FSU Thretre Masters program. Across the street at the Ringling Museum is the Historic Asolo Theatre, an 18th century interior brought here and reassembled.

If you are looking for a huge extravaganza with moving stages and 3 storey dragons you will be disappointed but if you enjoy theatre for great productions and acting GO!
