Letter: ‘They’ve done this to themselves’

April 12, 2023

Oregon Shakespeare Festival leaders have done this to themselves.

They can do things to bring back people. Stop the politically correct plays. Go back to traditional costumes in the Shakespeare plays. We won’t watch a play in modern garb. It ruins the experience. Many people have complained. Stop the one-man plays. Also, canceling plays due to cast sickness does not help. Understudies need to be kept separate from the cast. They are not doing a good job of that.

Lowering the ticket price was dumb and did not work. People are not coming because of what they are showing.

The choice is to continue to produce plays people don’t want to watch or listen to your customer base. We used to donate, but no more. We’re 30-year customers, about at the end of our rope. You are killing the local economy with your bull-headedness. People we know used to spend a week in Ashland, but no more.
