we went to see a wonderful production of Midsummer Night’s Dream this weekend. the comedies are not usually my favorite thing to see. and i’ve seen this particular one way too many times. but the lovers were silly and cross; the rustics were endearing. oh Bottom! you made me fall in love with an ass.
if you live in town, you’ve got one more weekend to see this Portland Actors Ensemble production…and it’s not to be missed. it was worth all the toddler wrangling that’s necessary when we bring our show on the road. it just wouldn’t be summer without Shakespeare in the Park. we’re even starting to dream about next season: the Scottish play and Taming of the Shrew!
