Good for us, Shakespeare never goes out of style. As summer rapidly approaches, what special event in the Shakespeare world has got you excited? Your local Shakespeare in the Park? A new movie coming out, a DVD release?
I’ve always loved our local Shakespeare on Boston Common, put on by Commonwealth Shakespeare. This year is especially important as Citibank dumped them (good, they never appreciated what they had!) and now the founders are going it on their own. So I’m looking forward to getting to the show – Comedy of Errors – and showing my support.
I saw a story today (that made me think of this post) that they’re doing a Coriolanus movie, but I have to say I’m not that interested. However, Julie Taymor’s Tempest will definitely put my butt in the seat.
Last year we saw a great Tempest for the kids down on Cape Cod, and I’m hoping to find another “for kids” show this season to make a family event of. Maybe Dream, but surprisingly my oldest (not yet 7) has spotted Winter’s Tale in her book and wants to know more about that one.
