Shakespeare on the Common

7/23/2007 12:27:00 PM
For those that make the annual trip to Boston Common during the summer to see a free performance of Shakespeare on the Common, be aware that the schedule has been chopped to about 1/3 this year due to budget cuts.

Instead of the the usual 20 performances, there will only be 7. That's right SEVEN. The Boston Globe ran an article on this yesterday (here). So pack up the lawn chairs and beach blankets and head over to the Common this week. Otherwise, you'll miss your chance.

This year, they're doing A Midsummer Night's Dream. I watched them rehearse briefly on Friday evening - It should be a great show. I have great respect for folks that can memorize and perform an entire play. Those are skills I just don't have. I can barely remember all the words to the songs on the radio. I'm hoping to go when I get back from my business trip late this week.
