Last night, a number of family members met to watch another one of Shakespeare’s plays, “Othello.” My wonderful niece from Louisiana was visiting and hadn’t ever seen a Shakespeare play before. I wish she would have been here for “All’s Well and Ends Well” last weekend because it was a much more cheerful play. Although it was an excellent performance by a cast of incredible actors, to me, Othello just wasn’t near as good as last weekend’s play. I am that I liked last weekend’s play because it was a comedy (and a really good one at that) and this was a tragedy.
We knew Vince, the actor who played Othello, and sat in a special reserved section. It was perfect because it had a cover over it while the others in the audience got a few rain drops through the performance. I can tell you that Vince is an unbelievable actor. He was just as flawless as he was in “A Raisin in the Sun” that we saw a while back. Vince, great, great job!
Seeing Shakespeare in the park for the first time last week and a second time this weekend, I am hooked. I will definitely make this a regular activity.
Peace and gratitude,
