Try to catch a performance in the "Elizabethan style" theatre -- but any of the venues are within walking distance of one another. Ask which are more accessible to the temporarily or long-term... more »
A world of fun! The musicals and plays I saw at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival simply blew me away with their awesomeness! The acting/dancing/singing was top notch, as were the sets/costumes/music. This was an unforgettable world class theater experience.
I loved watching Macbeth here! Staff is kind and friendly, and the fare is affordable. My only concern is that there are not enough safety checks in place.
My daughter and I drove up from Sacramento to see "All's Well That Ends Well". The Allen Elizabethan theatre was amazing! The play was three hours, and all with Ashland's perfect quirkiness. The costumes were a cross between Shakespeare and hip-hop and more, just as eclectic. We are already planning our next trip!
I've seen 5 shows at OSF and will be going every year forever, I think. Ridiculously brilliant stage productions, acting, costumes, direction, sets, lighting. So wonderful and unique and modern and inclusive.
The play, the Theatre, Ashland itself is amazing. Inspired by the art of the theater, both before and after watching the play. Beautiful. It inspired me to draw the theater's stages, on my hand. Hope you like! Fabulous
