Just got back from this. I realized that we are only about 2.5-3 hours from Cedar City, UT. <br><br>They have a nice production there, at least IMO. I've never been to any other "Shakespearean festivals", so I don't have much to compare it to. In addition to the main shows that had pre-show outdoor performers, and costume displays, as well as traditional food and drinks (mmm... scottish pies and steamed pudding).<br><br>We saw Antony and Cleopatra. I think we'll return for Hamlet in the next couple weeks. Its an awful long way from PA, so I don't suppose you've ever been?<br><br><br><br>the theatre<br><br><br><br>
Nope, never been to that festival. The theater looks like a good effort to reproduce the public theaters of Shakespeare's time. There are Shakespeare festivals all over the place. One near us isn't so good, although the production of Othello they're now running got a very good review. We also have one of those Renaissance Faire things not too far from us . . . really closer to SparkCollector. I haven't been to it, though--too much like acting <br><br>I hope you enjoyed Antony and Cleopatra. It's one of my favorite plays. I like to teach it with the other "and" plays (Romeo and Juliet, Troilus and Cressida) because the female characters in the titles are extraordinary.<br><br>. . . . . Here's lookin' at [color:red]you</font color=red> kid.

I struggled with Antony and Cleopatra because I've never read it nor seen it performed. Oh, its still very enjoyable, I just know that I am missing so many of the subtleties while I try to keep up. For example, now that I've seen Macbeth performed multiple times I can relax and enjoy picking up new things from it. Still, I can sure see what you mean about the leading ladies in some of these plays. The scene where Cleopatra beat the [censored] out of the Roman messenger was easily the best one of the night. <br><br><br>
