I worked at Shakespeare and as a contractor (Less than a year)
The work is usually artistically viable and the educational programs are good. They understand Shakespeare and how to put together a good Shakespeare production.
It is a very actor-centric company and production needs are not always fully understood causing tension at times. The company operates on the edge much of the time so pay is not good.
Advice to Management
Continue to work on the balance of what is the right size for a season, so as not to stretch the company members too far. Just the right amount.
