The Great River Shakespeare Festival Opens Friday!

Romeo and Juliet. Much Ado About Nothing. The Great River Shakespeare Festival. 24 June to 2 August 2015.

I've said it before, and I'll doubtless say it again: Go to the Great River Shakespeare Festival. They produce utterly unsurpassable Shakespeare, well worth driving hundreds of miles to see.

Preview performances start tomorrow; opening night is Friday.

Here's a quick link to my reactions to last year's festival.

And here's a trailer for their Much Ado About Nothing—it looks fabulous, and I love the tagline:  "What Love Dares."  Good stuff.
