Oregon’s Ashland Shakespeare Festival is one of the biggest regional theater operations in the US – 762 performances of 11 plays at three theaters from February to November. This year’s season was its most successful, with attendance of 374,246 and box office revenues of $9.9 million. Now a judge has ordered the company to open its books to a critic who has characterized the theater as “a medieval kingdom generating record revenues on the backs of nonunion workers.” (AP) Seattle Times
