Its free on a Monday - we visited over two days, on our second day there was a filmed interview with a trapeze artist, Tito Gaona, which was very good. These interviews are kept for posterity - "Collecting Recollections".
The theatre itself is very attractive inside

Beautifully appointed theater. It's size enables everyone to see/hear everything on the stage. We attend several times each year and have never been disappointed.

Sarasota is famous for the arts and this venue leads the pack. It was brought over from Italy and re-constructed on it's present site. Viewing it from the inside is almost as exciting as the shows that you see here. Again, it is mostly open during the "season", from Oct. to May so you may want to see what and when something is playing during your visit.

What a great theatre!! Saw the new Showboat show, it was like being in NYC on Broadway! Beautiful history of the theatre too. Never met such nice people who work there, ushers and bar/food areas. Highly recommend the Asolo Theatre.

We went to see Showboat and it was absolutely wonderful, although being English we didn't know all the songs. The Theatre itself is lovely and we could have listened to Old Man River being sung all night. All the singers were great
