On our recent road trip to California we made a stop in Ashland, Oregon. Ashland is known for the Shakespeare Festivals it has held every year since 1935. It has an outdoor Elizabethan theatre similar to the Globe theatre, the Allen Elizabethan Theatre named for its major contributor the Paul G. Allen Foundation. I remember being there years ago on another road trip but at that time the surrounding seated area was a banked lawn. I was surprised to see a semi enclosed seated outdoor theatre on this trip and was intrigued by the space so I was able to convince my family to give me enough time to sketch there.
