Commonwealth Shakespeare Goes It Alone


When I heard that we’d be getting Shakespeare on Boston Common again, my first thought was “Really?  After all the financial whining that Citibank does?  Quite frankly I’m surprised.”

Now, after reading the article in the Boston Globe about director Steve Maler, I’m not – they’ve cut ties, and he’s going it alone, and he needs to raise $350,000 to fund the planned 16 performances of The Comedy Of Errors.  I also understand that choice better now, as it is a small and strategic play without large and expensive set requirements.

You see, now I want to give money.  More to the point, I want Citi to give me back the money I gave them, so I can give it to Mr. Maler.
