Asolo Rep’s strong ties to its family of artists extend to Tony Award-winning directors, designers and actors from the theatre enclaves of New York, Chicago and London. Asolo Rep builds its own sets in its state-of-the-art Robert and Beverly Koski Production Center, a 45,000 square-foot facility that is the largest of its kind in the Southeastern United States. Asolo Rep’s scenic artists bring decades of hands-on expertise to shows not only produced in-house but for Broadway, Tampa’s Straz Center for the Performing Arts, Universal Studios Orlando, the Sarasota Ballet, Sarasota Opera and other regional theatres across the nation.
