  • World Class event! We saw three plays and every one of them had rousing standing ovations. They were all so moving, meaningful and also humorous.
  • Wonderful, little known vacation destination. Wonderful theater, beautiful landscape and fantastic food. When you tell the locals that you came from the other side of the country (like I did) they'll look at you like you are crazy, but Ashland and the surrounding area is not to be missed.
  • Top Broadway quality theater in a small town in southern Oregon. We just saw Octavio Solis's "Mother Road". A new piece, inspired by Steinbeck's "Grapes Of Wrath", it was set in contemporary America, touched on issues including racism, violence against women, LGBTQ issues, poverty and more, with a generous seasoning of the Hispanic experience. Great show, well acted with a versatile set and a theater with no bad seats.
  • normally love it. Play was great! they forgot to sign our group up for pre teach that we paid for, left us in a long wait, "someone's coming" energetic kids with no plan for a hour while waiting and then got rude greeting at the door from attendant. then was accommodated but generally stressful except for the play itself which was fantastic
  • Hairspray was amazing! The play was lively and the crowd was great :)
