The show was excellent. All characters played their parts very well and the music was superb. You felt as though you were there on the paddle boat.

The quality of performances at the Asolo are very good. The theater is a nice size even from the back. The price is usually right. I have no negative comments about the Asolo

There are two beautifully restored theaters, which I find a special part of the experience. Prix fixe dinner at the restaurant is excellent when they offer it. Interesting programming throughout the year.
