The scenic and costume shops at Asolo Rep are some of the very best I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Aside from each division being expertly helmed, the entire staff from the top down is extremely talented, precise to a fault and impeccable in the execution of their work. It's truly been a luxury to work with an organization so collectively dedicated to producing excellence.The company’s new scenic and prop shop facility would be the envy of virtually any theatrical producing organization. The spaciousness allows for multiple productions to spread out and be easily constructed at the same time. This – along with smaller but no less important aspects such as great organization, lighting and cleanliness – make this shop space a pleasure to use. —Tobin Ost, Scenic Designer for the 2010 production of Bonnie & Clyde
