At the very beginning, we weren't too sure that this version was going to work, but it definitely grew on us.
In general, we are fans of free summer Shakespeare programs in parks and this production was a lot of fun.
The actors are a good mixture of familiar faces along with a lead from Columbia and another from Havana.
The original Shakespeare dialog is left pretty much intact. They may have cut some things, the HH thinks, but I don't know the play well enough to verify that.
The actors are miked so there's no problem hearing, even in the lovely outdoor setting in Congress Park.
There are only two more performances scheduled. The show on Saturday evening, July 28, at 6:00 pm, will include live music by Sensemaya, an Albany area Latin jazz band.
The final performance will be a matinee on Sunday, July 29, at 3:00 pm. You should pack a picnic and go.
