There are 4 theatres and a great mix of Shakespeare and non-Shakespeare productions. All the shows I saw were top notch and really interesting.
Just wondering if anyone else has seen this or if I am new to the phenomenon.
What did you see?
I've never been...have been to a few summer Shakespeare-based festivals, including my favorite in Ashland, Oregon (just a joy, even though their Hamlet put me to sleep), but Stratford is very well known and I would love to hear more specifics of your time there and what you saw.
