The Asolo Rep has two theaters in their building--the larger Mertz Theater and the smaller Cook Theater. I saw The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity in the Cook. It was an amazing show and so different from any play I have ever attended. They actually...More

This was in a smaller Cook Theater inside the Asolo Building. An 80 minute show without intermission. A well performed play that kept you attention from start to finish. I recommend it as a great night of entertainment.

This has to be one of the best regional theater companies in the country. The theater itself is elegant with vintage accoutrements imported from Europe. The resident company is mostly equity and all very talented. The management does an excellent job of selecting a repertoire...More
