My husband and I began attending MSF productions 10+ years ago. We have left each performance delighted and impressed with the quality and artistry of each production we've seen. What begin as "a date night" was too good to keep to ourselves so we began bringing the children to the shows. It has become a sort of right of passage in our family to be able to attend the MSF. Now as young adults they too come each season and are delighted. The MSF does an incredible good of bringing Shakespeare to life at the same time keeping it fresh and appealing. The MSF is a true gem.

This became a rekindled love affair with Love's Labours Lost, which I attended with a group of friends in 2012. 20 minutes into the luscious and humorous production friends on both sides, one after the other leaned in to whisper, eyes alight "It's clicked...I understand the words!". It is magic when MSF actors perform ("translate" if you will with such ability and grace. An added plus - the entire audience enjoyed true belly laughs in this comedic performance. 2015's A Midsummer's Night Dream was another standout among each season's offerings...a weird, wild and wonderfully fun performance. An elegantly simple set and a perfect cast made for a perfect evening. I love MSF (both with the eyes AND the mind)!

These productions are top- notched- very comparable to Canada's.
