I come every year to Stratford and we just love this theatre. Everything from the acoustics, views, gift shop, gardens are all top-notch. I'm not sure how the previous reviewers could complain about the seats and the men's washroom (giving it one star) while saying the play was terrific. Sounds like they were reviewing a donut shop. If you want to see wonderful theatre, this is a great place to come.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the play, Oklahoma. It was excellent. We were very disappointed in the discomfort of the seats. We are not large people, but we found the seats to be extremely tight and uncomfortable. This is not a good thing when sitting for a 3 hour performance. We also found the washroom facilities to be lacking big time. We sat in the balcony, and during intermission, found out that there is only one men's room for the entire second floor, and that washroom has only one stall. The theatre seats more than 1,800.

There is not a bad seat in the theatre, with respect to viewing the stage, but they sure are uncomfortable.

We were very disappointed in the Stratford Festival Theatre. We were under the impression that it would be a first class facility, and it's not.
