Shaw Festival Theatre Reviews & Ratings

  • 1st time in attendance. Going to list the positives to try and make this quick. Try. : Easy drive, nice facilities, great seating (atleast on the first floor, can't speak for the upper level). The lobby cafe has a really good assortment of soups, sandwiches, salads, etc. (Not sure if the menu changes drastically per performance) The prices aren't bad at all and they offer other refreshments (wine, beer, soft drinks, specialty coffee, tea, etc) and desserts. The staff is very friendly and attentive to the needs of patrons. I attended a matinee and they had refreshments available for purchase before the performance, during intermission and afterward. There was also a small patio party where a band played for patrons after the show. Very cute and the weather was beautiful. Definitely would come back again and see another show. Overall experience was wonderful *I thought leaving a review of the show would be out of place because I'm positive the season changes but Brigadoon was a great.

  • The venue itself is wonderful. Staff are friendly and helpful. The stage construction was amazing, and the performance was very good. However, parking is so woefully inadequate as to knock not one, but two stars off. There was no parking available when we went and it took nearly 40 minutes to find alternate parking elsewhere in the town. I wound up missing a chunk of the performance and having to rejoin my party at intermission.

  • Annual trip to Shaw Festival Theatre and saw Brigadoon. Outstanding performance. Actors/actresses top notch with singing and dancing. Orchestra...Great!!! Shaw Festival does not disappoint. Worth the trip.

  • Beautiful Theatre. Saw Brigadoon which was superb. Sat in seats J18 and J19 which were dead centre orchestra. Excellent view. There is a nice cafe featuring Niagara wine and salads, sandwiches, and other goodies.

  • An amazing place to see creativity at its best. The cost for drinks and treats however is a bit excessive. Bathrooms clean and easy to find. The plays were a wonderful way to spend the afternoon.
