The plays are performed in 3 theaters: the outdoor Elizabethan theater (~1200 seats), the indoor Bowmer (~600...More

OSF; As always, good acting. One downside was the horrible air quality. Smoke led to cancellation of Romeo and Juliet. Other downside was the production of Oklahoma. Great music and good acting but we found the blatant and obscene "in-your-face" LGBTQ theme very off-putting.

We saw Othello Friday eve. The performance was very good. Unfortunately, because of the poor air quality, the outside events earlier in the day were cancelled.

We had a great experience at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival seeing 2 great plays in one day. The updated Oklahoma was fun—great orchestra, singing and dancing. Manahata was a wonderful play brilliantly weaving native american stories together. We are so glad we finally made it...More

We were there August 6-10 and the smoke was bad, but we did walk around town to shop. The worst for us were itchy, runny eyes and nose. Some places sell masks but given the heat, they were a hassle. The Festival will... More
