Ashland is a beautiful place to visit. Shakespeare Festival was wonderful but, the fires surrounded Ashland and we were sitting in smoke watching the play.

This has become a center for new and innovative productions, including the minority of Shakespeare plays they produce. Read up before you go so you can choose wisely; not every play will appeal to everyone, although each one will be thought and conversation provoking. We...More

After an absence of almost three years because we were living overseas, we made it back to the OSF. Too late in the season for the outdoor Theatre. But we saw Othello in the Bowmer Theatre and Manhattan in the small theatre. Both were outstanding.

In Ashland for only one night, we got tickets for “Sense and Sensibility.” The staging was creative and the performance was spirited and clever. Every actor was strong in representing the characters I remember from reading this Jane Austen novel many years ago.

With several theaters indoors and outside you just can’t miss booking a night at The Shakesphere Festival! The plays are varied and not all by Shakesphere. The theater company takes “creative license” sometimes with Classic plays...turning drama into comedy, or changing the setting from Verona,...More

I don’t think it’s normal but would be fun......I think others would enjoy it, and you wouldn’t be laughed out of town by any means. Go for it!.......especially if you’re going to the Elizabethan theater.
