Shakespeare in the Arb!

Last night we went to see A Midsummer Night's Eve at Nichol's Arboretum-- and I would highly recommend it to everyone.  There is something hilarious about traipsing around in the woods, watching a play where the characters spend lots of time traipsing around in the woods!  

If you love Shakespeare, you will enjoy the sheer beauty of the surroundings, as well as the play-- and if you're not a huge fan, you may be surprised at how much you enjoy the play itself-- and how FUNNY it is!  Shakespeare spoofs actors and audiences, as well as the aristocracy.

To add to the atmosphere, the peonies are also blooming
One of the parts that I loved best, was walking from scene to scene, with fairies running around in the woods-- and other fairies playing music.

 Be sure and bring a folding chair, if you don't enjoy sitting on the ground.  It may be possible to catch a ride on a golf cart rather than walking-- but I would call first and inquire.

The play runs Thursday through Sunday, until June 28.  Senior prices are $17, or with a Matthaei-Nichols membership, a reserved ticket is $15.  Read all the details here.
