Live Escape Game in Ashland Oregon

Escape Ashland!


You might think as I did that you know everything about Ashland Oregon, but as I found out there are hidden gems and new unique experiences to enjoy here in our small mountain town.
One of these new experiences may not be for everyone, It's called "Escape Ashland."
Escape Ashland is Southern Oregon's unique escape room game located in our historic downtown, just two blocks from the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Escape games are live-action entertainment that involve observation, problem solving and teamwork to solve puzzles and challenges to "escape" from the room. Part scavenger hunt, part puzzle solving-total exhilaration! Has this peaked your interest? For more go to esacapeashland.com

Oregon Shakespeare Festival : Mojada Medea in Los Angeles


Mojada is a modern day story of Medea, her "husband" Jason and their son Acan (played by a fabulous local boy Jahnangel Jimenez). The family together with their longtime housekeeper Tita (Vivis) endure a horrific and harrowing journey from Mexico to reach Los Angeles, seeking a better life. Jason is very ambitious and after a period of working as a day laborer Jason finds a job with a wealthy local builder Armida ( Vilma Silva) herself an immigrant who has done well in the poor neighborhood of Boyle Heights. He spends more and more time away from home working while Medea struggles as a seamstress doing piece work. Sabina Zuniga Varela is mesmerizing as Medea who finds the transition to American life difficult. Jason ( played by Lakin Valdez) tries hard to comfort his wife but is driven to be successful in this new land.

Director Juliette Carillo does a marvelous job of creating the real tension between Medea and Jason. Play-write Luis Alfaro's masterful and thought provoking adaption of the Greek story of Medea tugs at your heartstrings as Medea becomes more and more desperate and Jason betrays her in the most awful way. Medea makes her final devastating and heart braking decision, in the horrific climax of the play.

Where are they now? Oregon Shakespeare Festival: Ashland Oregon


We at the blue Moon have been wondering where some of our favorite actors from the Oregon Shakespeare Festival were this year, we missed their names on the billboard.

Mark Bedard and John Tufts who you we are sure you remember them appearing together in "Cocoanuts" and "Animal Crackers" they are now playing in "Pride and Prejudice" at the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival in New York until September.
One of our favorite actors Michael Winters whom we loved in "All the Way" and" King Lear" has been appearing at the Taproot Theatre in Seattle. We miss them all and hope to see them in Ashland again very soon.

Oregon Shakespeare Festival plays, so much to love!


Jean-Pierre and I close our Inn during November until early February every year to travel around the US and Europe. During our off time we get to visit small hotels and B&Bs, it's a great way for us to see how other Inns operate. We really enjoy our time away and have a wonderful three months of traveling and meeting with family and friends around the world. But we love coming home to Ashland Oregon, we always feel energized and excited to start a new season at the Blue Moon. We especially look forward to seeing returning guests and meeting new folks who find their way to our Inn. The Oregon Shakespeare Festival is in full swing as I write this, we have already seen four plays so far this season, there are so many exciting and unusual plays to enjoy this year, and like you we can't wait to see every one of them. The plays we have seen so far have been fabulous. They are a new play Mojada: A Medea in Los Angeles, which was absolutely magical. And two Shakespeare history plays;Henry IV part one and Julius Caesar, both highly creative and inspiring, and last but not least Shakespeare in Love, a romantic, fanciful and brilliant romp with exquisitely beautiful costumes. We enjoyed all these outstanding plays immensely. We are looking forward to sharing enthusiastic conversations with you about this extraordinary 2017 season.
