Asolo Repertory Theatre

Hotels near Asolo Repertory Theatre, Sarasota, United States .

Theatre lovers visiting Sarasota will be thrilled at the chance to see a production over at the Asolo Repertory Theatre. The largest Equity theatre in the entire state of Florida, Asolo Repertory Theatre also is the site of many performances by those Florida State University students who are participating in the school's Master of Fine Arts program in acting.

While the Aslo Theatre has been in the state of Florida for about 50 years, its history stretches back long before that. Originally a theatre in Venice, Italy, it was actually the home of many performances by famous Italian actress Elenora Duse, and beloved by many Venetians. However, in the 1930s, the entire theatre was actually put in storage, carefully taken apart piece by piece, thanks to its unique multi-tiered box design.

The theatre caught the eye of the museum director of the famed Jon and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, and was eventually bought and reassembled right in Sarasota. While the theatre was initially part of the museum's collection, those board members, as well as members of the local theatre community, decided that it would be much more fun as a functioning theatre. It is now a part of the Florida State University Center for the Performing Arts.

A number of famous and more edgy productions have been put on at Asolo Repertory Theatre, including "Contact," numerous Mozart operas, and other famous plays performed by well-known companies. Performances often sell out, so those interested in attending should call ahead of time to secure tickets.

Located in downtown Sarasota, many hotels are just a short drive from Asolo Repertory Theatre, including the Days Inn Sarasota, the Hyatt Place Hotel, and the Springhill Suites Sarasota.
