“Great Theater”
Reviewed 7 January 2013

I started going to the Asolo in the 1970s, when it was in the small theater behind the Ringing Art Museum. The quality of the performances were nearly always all one could ask. As young person I attended a performance of Twelfth Night -- expecting to be cultured, but not entertained. I laughed through the show and left a devoted Shakespeare fan. Go! You won't be disappointed.

“Gifted actors, Beautiful venue”
Reviewed 7 January 2013

This group does a great job. I have seen many shows throughout the years and all are exellent despite the wide array of different topics. The Auditorium is very nice, and all the seats are good. The balcony is high up but still very viewable. Tip - on day of perfomance you can get a "Rush" ticket for a highly discounted price.

“1776”
Reviewed 6 January 2013

This was my first visit to the Asolo. We had a friend who was in 1776 and made the drive from Orlando to see the show. It was wonderful! The theatre is beautiful and the staff is kind and accomodating. We are planning another trip for January to see Glengarry Glen Ross.

“1776 Rocks”
Reviewed 29 December 2012

1776 performance was great, the theatre is wonderful, great atmosphere. Only problems, do not go for the balcony, no leg room, hard to see the full deep stage for this performance. Easy to get tickets, a little pricey but good for a special night out. One problem they might want to correct, during break the only serving area was on the main floor, the mezz. and balcony waiting area did not have a serving station, long waits but the facility is great and the performance is also wonderful, top notch.

“Great theatre, great spot”
Reviewed 22 December 2012

The theatre is compact but lovely. Apparently it was transported from Italy and reassembled here. Intimate and inspirational, and great for performances.
