Southwest Shakespeare Returns to LIVE PERFORMANCES!

This season we are performing in two intimate venues at the stunningly beautiful Mesa Arts Center and Frank Lloyd Wright’s iconic Taliesin West. In these venues, none of which have more than 200 seats, the power and thrill of these stories will come to life. Seating availability may be  limited, but the experience will be PROFOUNDLY ENHANCED.

We  follow the most up-to-date safety protocols and post updates on our website as they are available.

Secure your seats for this BRAVE NEW SEASON!
