We saw Love's Labour's Lost this past Saturday night and it was wonderful. It was our first time at the theater and the Margeson Theater is a great venue for Shakespeare. The entire cast were very good; we particularly liked Jacob Dresch as Costard; but know him personally. The production was also very well done, using the turntable and lighting,... More

Orlando Shakes is an opportunity to see some top notch talent in a smaller venue which adds to the personal excitement of live performance. Each season gives a wide variety of theater to enjoy. The cast, crew and even the event staff give their all to make sure the evening is enjoyable from beginning to end. We became season subscribers... More

150 freshmen do Shakespeare. An annual event for over 17 years, our school makes the two hour drive to see an excellent -albeit risqué - play. This year, Love's Labours Lost. The kids very much enjoyed it and the cast was excellent in the talkback afterward. Staff was every friendly and helped us move in and out quickly. A wonderful... More

I've lived in Orlando 12 years and have been going to Orlando Shakes consistently for the last several years. The shows are well thought out and directed. The performers are consistently wonderful quality. Though we most recently saw The Great Gatsby, we've seen many unique adaptations of Shakespeare here as well. The Christmas seasonal plays are always a must-see! There's... More

I've been to a few shows here over the years, most recently I saw The Great Gatsby. Every show I've seen has been phenomenal. Great performers who never miss a beat! I wish they did meet and greets after the shows for all the guests. They serve beer and wine and let you prepay for your intermission drinks and then... More

We just saw "Every Christmas Story and then Some". The three performers were simply outstanding. They involved the audience, took requests and worked them into the story, and blended everything extremely well. These three guys are simply very good at performing.

Performed by outstanding actors of the Shakespeare Theater Company, this play was incredible! The acting was top notch, the theater (one of three in the complex) was small and intimate, and felt like it was happening in our living room. I jumped more than once from the close action. Set design, lighting and music, as always, was perfect and amazing.... More
