Yet another fantastic performance by Shakespeare in the Park is always one of the highlights of my summer.

Glorious summer evening, sold out performance, after – the traffic jam slowly leaves the park. An audience member watches in awe: It’s like leaving a hockey game!

We saw the play tonight. What a great performance by all! One of the best comedies we have seen. And we loved the staging of the play. Such playful teamwork! Congratulations!
