...in the Shakespeare Project.
Two years ago, just as I was beginning my blog journey, we began an ongoing Shakespeare project. Having no Shakespeare experience, we dove in headlong. In the past two and a half years, we've read or listened to many retellings, watched a handful of movies, memorized a monologue or two, and attended 11 live plays! (Six of those plays were thoughtfully abridged and presented as double features.)
This past weekend we attended our 3rd Bard in the Quad, an outdoor performance at Oregon State University. I love the venue and the past plays have been fabulous. I must admit, though, that I was disappointed in Twelfth Night. The interpretation lacked the pizazz of past performances (which included army jeeps, swing dance numbers, and a hilarious 'synchronized swimming' routine) and emphasized the crude humor and innuendos (not really appropriate for family entertainment) more so than the previous two plays. Sigh. All things considered, we had a wonderful evening.
