The theater is beautiful. The parking (for a matinee, anyway) is more than adequate. The exit (remember, this is Sarasota) is somewhat difficult. This being said, the production of "Guys and Dolls" is fantastic. The performers are incredibly talented as are the musicians and the designers. The show is wonderful. If there are any tickets left (it runs until January... More

Have just seen Guys and Dolls, like most of the audience I suspect I have seen the film and several stage shows of this musical. BUT this is a production that is way and above any other production of this well known show - I urge you to get tickets. An hour before every show they have Scoop, up on... More

We recently spent a weekend in Sarasota and attended a showing of Guys and Dolls at the Asolo Theatre. The show was absolutely terrific. What a great display of talent! And, the theatre is very attractive, comfortable, and views of the stage seem to be good from every seat. The building is right on the Ringling property, with plenty of... More

We've attended theater music and ballet happily here. The theater is a jewel. Relatively small so everyone feels close to the stage with great viewing. Parking is convenient too

ASOLO's productions are the very best. Several productions we have seen there are better than Broadway. WEST SIDE STORY, SHOW BOAT could not have been better.

This is a very special theater and part of the Ringling Collection. It is a historical theater that was created in Asolo, Italy brought to Sarasota and then restored. It is very ornate and beautiful and used for plays and different events. We have seen a one man play and the Chinese Acrobats in the past. It is an intimate... More

Do not pass up an opportunity to see a play or musical show at the lovely Asolo Theatre, a jewel on the vast Ringling property. We enjoyed recently a high-quality performance of the delightful musical "Hetty Feather" in this beautiful and comfortable theatre. The Asolo has a proud history of quality theatre, much of it appropriate for families. This is... More

My wife and I attended a matinee performance of "Josephine", a Broadway bound musical that was spectacular! The cast, music, staging, lighting, and I am sure many other ingredients of which I am not aware were stupendous. The Asolo routinely presents performances that are outstanding. If you cannot get season tickets, call early for specific shows.

Saturday night we were honored to partake in a meaningful discussion after the play, with cast members Bianca LaVerne Jones and Lee Stark. Five outstanding performances in this riveting play caused the cozy Historic Asolo to reverberate with tension. The discussion with the actors brought the unsettled audience to a common understanding of the basic humanity necessary to respect each... More
