I happened to see an advertisement for a show as I was arriving at the SRQ airport, and decided to call for tickets. Although the show was not in the original Asolo Theater, the new hall is really wonderful and the show was REALLY outstanding. Broadway level sets, actors and music. I was just in NYC a few weeks ago... More

Saw Guys & Dolls and was wowed by how wonderfully the show was presented. Great singing and dancing and a wonderful set. We are set to see two more shows while in Sarasota. The Asolo always has quality performances so we book the productions on the first day that the individual sales are available. Great shows and a beautiful theatre... More

Being a seasoned theatre-goer I always look forward to the Asolo musical productions. SHOW BOAT, WEST SIDE STORY, and now GUYS AND DOLLS all become new again. GUYS AND DOLLS, an old, yet wondrous 'old saw' is made new again with billiant choreography and musical arrangements.. When I leave this theatre I also wonder what is next since I cannot... More

Don't let the name Repertory Theater fool you...this isn't the local folks putting on a show for their families. We saw a matinee of Guys and Dolls, which was outstanding. The actors have nationwide credits, including several who have performed on Broadway. The leads could have played these roles in any major city company...they performed with talent, joy, and nuance.... More

The theater is beautiful. The parking (for a matinee, anyway) is more than adequate. The exit (remember, this is Sarasota) is somewhat difficult. This being said, the production of "Guys and Dolls" is fantastic. The performers are incredibly talented as are the musicians and the designers. The show is wonderful. If there are any tickets left (it runs until January... More

Have just seen Guys and Dolls, like most of the audience I suspect I have seen the film and several stage shows of this musical. BUT this is a production that is way and above any other production of this well known show - I urge you to get tickets. An hour before every show they have Scoop, up on... More

We recently spent a weekend in Sarasota and attended a showing of Guys and Dolls at the Asolo Theatre. The show was absolutely terrific. What a great display of talent! And, the theatre is very attractive, comfortable, and views of the stage seem to be good from every seat. The building is right on the Ringling property, with plenty of... More

We've attended theater music and ballet happily here. The theater is a jewel. Relatively small so everyone feels close to the stage with great viewing. Parking is convenient too

ASOLO's productions are the very best. Several productions we have seen there are better than Broadway. WEST SIDE STORY, SHOW BOAT could not have been better.

This is a very special theater and part of the Ringling Collection. It is a historical theater that was created in Asolo, Italy brought to Sarasota and then restored. It is very ornate and beautiful and used for plays and different events. We have seen a one man play and the Chinese Acrobats in the past. It is an intimate... More
