Oregon Shakespeare Fest Delays Reopening To September
The Oregon Shakespeare Festival brings tourists by the thousands to Ashland every year to see its award-winning plays. But with Covid-19 on the loose, there are no plays, no tourists, and no ticket income.
OSF planned to reopen in the second week of April, but has now taken the drastic step of staying dark until September 8th, and cancelling five plays planned for the season. Artistic Director Nataki Garrett, in just her first full year at the festival, visits with details of the cutbacks and their intended duration.
