Shakespeare for Everybody

From one member of the audience for Flatwater Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor --

"i saw merry wives at wyuka tonight . . . i don’t usually get shakespeare, but . . . i loved it big time . . . the acting is just outstanding . . . hats off to melissa, joel and becky. . . and an oh so cute robie . . . i laughed very hard and swallowed two bugs . . . great night! thanks for all your obvious hard work! you all rocked it!"

And from another audience member --

"I thought the Merry Wives production excellent. I thought that it communicated what Shakespeare’s language is saying and did so, in Horace’s phrase, so as to teach and delight during the whole show."

I attended the last performance of "The Merry Wives Of Windsor" & thoroughly enjoyed it! Great cast, great venue! It was only the second Shakespeare play I'd ever seen (I saw Nebraska Rep's "Twelfth Night" in 1974) & now I'm hungry for more!
