CEDAR CITY — Pop quiz! What attracts 130,000 audience members per year, has won a Tony Award, and has been running for 50 years? Of course, the answer is the Utah Shakespeare Festival.  Today marks the opening of the Festival’s 50th anniversary season and UTBA is down in Cedar City covering it all. Here is a taste of what you can expect over the next several days.

  • Reviews of all six currently running Festival productions. We’ll probably be posting one per day starting with tomorrow’s review of The Glass Menagerie.
  • YouTube videos of Festival actors and administrators talking about this year’s plays.
  • Special features about the Festival’s past, present, and future.
  • Photos and insight into the 50th anniversary of the Festival.

So, come back often to the UTBA web site for information about the Utah Shakespeare Festival. You can also learn more about our experience at the UTBA Facebook profile page.  We’re also tweeting like a robot on crack in order to give you real time updates on what we’re doing.  You can follow us (UtahTheaterBlog) or join in the conversation by using the hashtags #utba and #utahshakes.  Finally, we’re also updating our Facebook status whenever possible.  So, keep up with us and enjoy some of the best theatre of Utah along with us.
