What a fun-filled evening watching this great musical under a beautiful night sky. The live music before the show set the perfect mood for the main production. From the stage set-up, the live orchestra, to the performers made this play a magical experience. The singing...More

I recently attended a production of Mamma Mia at this theater. The venue is beautiful, and the production was very well done. My daughter, sister in law and I all enjoyed the show. I have never seen a production I didn't like at this theater.

The actors were excellent! A little bit of humor thrown in was perfect. It was a delightful and entertaining evening. If you wanted, you could either bring or purchase a meal and drinks. What a great way to spend a relaxing evening.

We always look forward to summers in Boise and the beginning of a new season at the Idaho Shakespeare Festival. Located in a wonderfully landscape setting, ideally designed for seating under the stars. Be aware, that even if the day time temperatures were in 90's...More
