Oregon Shakespeare Festival
This Tony Award-winning festival annually presents 11 plays by Shakespeare and other classic and contemporary playrights in three unique theaters. These plays are performed from February 18-October 29.
OSF Ashland has just previewed The Comedy of Errors. I saw it Sunday night in the outdoor theater, and it was hilarious and set with a Law West of the Pecos theme. A new book and score for its musical comedy format, sort of Noel Coward wild west flavor, is fabulous. The singing and dancing, and overacting, are great.
A new musical score played by the composer on stage with a talented trio throughout, is lively, witty and I couldn't recommend it more highly. Don't expect classic Shakespeare here. It's 85 per cent The Bard, and the rest the yield of modern stagecraft. The Festival has new direction, and it shows! Laugh and Enjoy!
Outstanding actors performing outstanding plays. Go to Ashland and enjoy yourselves!
That's what my wife and I did this past February. It wasn't our first time to the festival and it won't be our last.
I've been going to OSF productions for about 10 years, and I love it each time. Having been to productions in LA and London, I consider OSF to be just as good as anything else in the professional acting world. It's more personal and entertaining than the movies, and the entire experience is worth the money. The outdoor theater in the summer is an incredibly memorable night.
I love going to Ashland , Oregon for the Oregon Shakesphere Festival with my wonderful family because i get to enjoy seeing my favorite shakesphere plays outdoors. I have seen so many and I might take my family someday when the kids that i have are old enough to be able to see those plays. It is defiently worth doing because Oregon is famous for theatraical stuff and I like getting away from the indoors.
