You don't need to head to England to experience the genius of a Shakespearean play. Much closer to home is the Oregon Shakespeare Festival located in Ashland, Oregon. Every year at the end of October you can enjoy on average over ten of Shakespeare's plays performed in both classic and newly imagined style. Separate tickets are needed for each show which is held at one of the event campus's two indoor or one outdoor spaces.

We attended Measure for Measure after the play was moved due to structural damage in the usual theatre. Despite this last-minute change, the acting and directing were superb, and the contemporary interpretation made the play relevant. While I just had time to see this one...More

OSF always does a great job and this in one of their best. Top talent in a fantastic production. Equal to anything on Broadway. Don't miss it.
