Shakespeare is in the House

My weekend was bookended by William Shakespeare.

On Friday I went to the Shakespeare in the Park and saw "Love's Labour Lost." This was a work sponsored event with free dinner and great seats. It was set in the 60's with a Beatles influenced trip to a guru in India. It was weird and not that great. I left at intermission.

Sunday I went to see "Hamlet" at the Shakespeare Theater Company. It was their final dress and a friend who works there provided free tickets. It was set in a modern time with some cool twists. It was fresh and I really enjoyed it. I left when it was over.

Ra ra ra for Shakespeare.
