We attended a play inside one summer and another the next summer at the outdoor theatre. Both were well-done and entertaining. The outdoor venue had a special charm and refreshments for sale. They even have back-rest seats to put on top of benches which was...More

Went to see Comedy of Errors in their outdoor theatre. Absolutely loved it. The theatre is lovely and they handed out folding bleacher seats. A little hard to find where to go if you're not familiar with the campus, but well worth it.

The Colorado Shakespeare Festival production of Comedy of Errors was excellent. It is hard to believe that they can continue to assemble such a talented cast year after year. The French cabaret flavor to this production made it even better. Don't miss this one!

I've attended CSF plays several times in the last several years and have always had a great time. Last night, however, a friend of mine and I attended "A Comedy of Errors" and it was phenomenal. If you go, allow enough time before the play...More
