I can't imagine this city without Shakespeare. It's lovely and professional and we're so fortunate to have it here. I've lived in much larger cities that didn't have a place this wonderful or people willing to support it. Well done.

The show was great, but the microphones were placed too close to the band. We sat in the balcony and expected to hear quite well as had always been our experience. When Elvis Presley was alive, his voice could always be heard over his band....More

I wore casual clothes. Not blue jeans but nice pants and blouse. The men didn't wear coat and tie. Some people were dressed up and some were not. I did not feel out of place not being dressed up. Hope this helps!
