I've watched the Festival and the city grow since 1978, Together, they have built a five star experience in rural Ontario (1hr to Toronto). The Festival theater experience is stellar compared to other venues. First, of course, there are the plays. It always is an eclectic mix, geared to their stage spaces, and ensemble cast. Production values (costumes, lighting, sound) are exquisite. The acting is phenomenal. You can catch superstar movie and theater actors playing both large and small roles with panache. Take your pick - thrust stage, proscenium, arthouse - the productions are impeccable, easily understood, entertaining, and often, magical.
As for the city, it has grown from diner food to gourmet, as has accomodations.
Give yourself five days to submerge yourself in theater. See every production you can. I did for thirty years, and my only regret in moving to Charleston is the distance and the travel.

We are members and visit the Stratford Festival every year. Last year we saw JC Superstar and Camelot. The productions are professional and flawless.
