“Excellence in local acting.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

Start with parking and the theatre-both easy access. Got good seats in row D. Would not want to be closer. The play was "Can't take it with you", and the actors were a mix of professionals and 3rd year acting students. All were fantastic. The set was great, staging great, and enunciation and projection were perfect. Good play also.

We will definitely return when in town.

“Outstanding Theatre!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We were slightly apprehensive about Asolo and its relatively steep regional theater prices.

Nonetheless, we read the reviews and invested in tix to You Can't Take It With You and were delighted with the total experience.

The performance was professional in every way, with a lovely set, excellent acting, and house acoustics that allowed us to hear every word from the middle of the mezzanine.

If we lived nearby, we'd subscribe. End of story.

“Wonderful local theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

The caliber of performances at the Asolo is first class. Some original productions, so well known shows. The acting is excellent, and the building and history very unique. A great way to spend an evening in Sarasota.

“Always amazing.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

I've seen multiple productions at the Asolo, and they are always amazing. I love, love, love the costumes--I saw Las Meninas, among other shows, and was just in awe.

“I wish I lived in Sarasota...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

Simply some of the best theatre I've seen off Broadway. We saw You Can't Take it With You on opening night on a whim...last seats on the main floor. What a lovely space! What a delightful cast! We both remarked that if we lived local we'd be season ticket holders. Loved it.
