off the beaten path: Eugene’s Lord Leebrick Theatre Company

One of the joys of being a theatre goer in a place like Oregon is discovering that there are theatres spread throughout the state. From Ashland’s Oregon Shakespeare Festival to the Coaster Theatre in Cannon Beach to Lord Leebrick in Eugene, Oregon has good theatres in beautiful natural settings.

Lord Leebrick is a personal favorite. Founded in 1992, LL now does several shows a year, often including the latest from Broadway. Currently running Nov. 2-25 is NEXT FALL by Geoffrey Nauffts, which was nominated for a Tony for Best Play in 2010. The small space and location make for an authentic Oregon theatre experience.

The next time your travels take you near Eugene, take a look at Lord Leebrick.
