Shakespeare Rocks at APT!

Just got back from Spring Green, Wisconsin, home of American Players Theatre. The opening play was Winter's Tale, which was one of the bard's last works. The first half is a bitter tragedy and the second half something of a comedy of redemption. It's a real tough first act that never quite squares with the last act with pieces of Othello, Macbeth and Twelfth Night thrown in.

Yesterday we saw A Comedy of Errors, complete with big band music and Marx Brothers slapstick.

Don't miss it!!
