All of the venues at Stratford are great but I especially love the Avon. Being right downtown there are great restaurants and shopping.

Attended production of last month Coriolanus. Renovations to the entrance were a definite improvement and aesthetically pleasing. The play was amazing and the stage management and production were phenomenal. This theatre does extremely well for its patrons.
