Best Local Performing Arts 2018

Idaho Shakespeare Festival

Audiences loved the Idaho Shakespeare Festival for more than 40 seasons. Helena says in A Midsummer Night's Dream, "Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind." And indeed, the Bard would be proud of the mindfulness that fills ISF's amphitheater each summer. Whether it's a comedy or tragedy from Shakespeare's canon, a classic from Shaw or Miller, or one of the festival's incredibly popular contemporary musicals, audiences continue to hunger for more. After all, it was Shakespeare himself who wrote, "If music be the food of love, play on." Indeed, there's much to love.
