“Fun evening of theater with a lake backdrop”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

Everything about this venue was very well-organized and welcoming, from the parking area to the ticket desk. The food service in the convivial open-air area outside the theater was excellent; I'm still dreaming about the scrumptious fish tacos. We splurged on the Adirondack chair seats toward the front of the stage and very much enjoyed the lively production of "Two Gentlemen of Verona," which was played for zany laughs. All in all this was an excellent outing; it got a tad chilly after the sun went down, but we brought cover-ups so we were fine. This is a fun cultural event for anyone who wants a break from the many outdoorsy pleasures of beautiful Lake Tahoe.

“fun fun”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We've gone every year for the last three and enjoy it each time. Be sure to dress warm even when its hot during the day as it cools off quick

“If you like Shakespeare”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

It's a great venue; beautiful when there is no wind. But it can be very cold. It's very intimate but get the reserved seats. Also try to get near the middle seats or you will be straining your neck. The sound system for the seats up the hill is terrible.

“Must experience at least once”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Depending on the play it could be very good or just ok but the beauty and experience of it all overlooking late tahoe during sunset is amazing. Truly a great treat of fun.

“Best Shakespeare Experience Anywhere”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We try to make one performance every year. I'm a fan of Shakespearian theater, and this is my favorite anywhere. (It's true that I have not seen any in England). It's the fun, informal presentation and stunning natural surroundings that make this an event not to be missed. Don't let "informal" fool you...these performances are always very professionally produced and well-acted.
