We attended Love's Labour Lost on the play's opening night. As we were sitting in 'Premier Seating' we had both seat cushions and water waiting for us at our seats. Both were welcome, especially as the temperature in the enclosed outdoor theatre gets very warm!
The play itself is not the most common of Shakespeare's plays but it was well performed and we enjoyed it very much.
The opening act outside prior to the start of the play was also a welcome diversion, with several people in costume selling snacks, programs and so on.
One draw back, however, dealt with the age old problem of women's restrooms. There was simply not enough in the location people were directed towards and no one mentioned an alternate location until it was almost too late to make it back into the theatre in time for the second act. As it was opening night, I would hope they have resolved this issue since we were there!

The plays are well-performed and very professional. The outdoor Adams Theatre is a fun experience. Pre-show acts are entertaining. Overall, a good experience.

Go the first week called Review week. Get the cheapest seats you can cause they actually are the best viewing ones.
