Great performance of a very topical play "the Breathing Hole" in a theater where you are very close to the stage. It works well.

Our family enjoyed a performance of "The Breathing Hole" at the Studio Theatre. Located at the back of the Avon Theatre building, the lobby is quite small with limited bathrooms. The theatre itself is very small with audience members entering on the stage level and...More

The Studio seats are very steeply raked and the climb can be difficult for those with disabilities. There isn't a poor seat in the house, but the seats are a bit narrow for the overweight. If you wear a hearing aid, take advantage of the...More

This is a small theatre at the back of the Avon on George St. Saw the Aeneid performed there. Seating, like a few other venues in Stratford is quite awkward and not the most comfortable. Still OK overall.

There are no plays just yet. They begin in May. I would think, if you're driving from Ridgetown, that an afternoon play would work better than one starting at 8:00 p.m. I see that the question below is from September... More
