On a visit with two families, young children in tow, we caught a performance of The Secret Garden. The production was great--with especially notable staging and sets. The facility is top-notch. Nearby parking is plentiful (even with an event across the street at the Verizon...More

I have attended many plays at this locale. Yesterday, I saw The Secret Garden. It was mystical, the actors were wonderful, the sets and costumes were amazing. I'm not much into Shakespeare's political plays, but they put this story to music. Obviously, many parents brought...More

Knew nothing of this theatre. Last week, saw The Secret Garden at the Shakespeare Theatre (Sidney Harman). Others have covered the theatre which I largely echo - good safe location, underground parking, comfy venue. No surprises with venue itself but blown away at the quality...More

I'm not sure if it is because it is so late in the production's run, but "Romeo and Juliet" was a gross disappointment at the Shakespeare Theatre Company. Acoustics were miserable. Most of the actors' articulation, diction, and projection were worse than your average junior...More

We've been subscribing for years now at STC and never regretted a thing. Each show is very well executed, a thoroughly enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend going.

Many people find Romeo and Juliet to be one of the most approachable Shakespeare plays but this production moves the writing into the 21st American century. It is told through the filter of "The Jersey Shore." Though the language is hundreds of years old the...More
