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

Central Florida boasts a nationally acclaimed theater, or to be exact, three of them under one roof. In the old science center, a dedicated group of theater lovers has labored with love to produce world class entertainment right here in Orlando. What used to be Shakespeare in the Park, showing two Shakespeare plays at the Lake Eola Ampitheater each spring... More

Saw West Side Story, our seats were in row B and you could hear the actors breathing. Very intimate setting, no more than 200 seats I think, and the stage is floor level. The production was very good, traditional and respectfully of the history of this production. Everyone there is extremely friendly, from will call to the ushers to the... More

The play is slightly different from the movie, if that sort of thing bothers you... All the acting, dancing and singing was professional. A good-looking and versatile set. My one major complaint is I find the seats horribly uncomfortable, and about the mid-way point, I'm getting backaches, neck ache etc. My husband doesn't seem to have this problem. Sure wish... More
