Travel to a small English town in the late 1940s -- complete with the swinging music and dancing of the era -- where lusty Sir John Falstaff has just arrived short on funds and with the goal of seducing the wives of Windsor's two wealthiest citizens. But these "merry wives" see right through his plan and proceed to turn the tables on the rogue, bringing all kinds of chaos to town in the process. The Merry Wives of Windsor pays tribute to the screwball comedies of the 1930s and is Shakespeare's only play to deal with contemporary middle-class life. Learn More

So well done! FUN for the kids and adults. Some of the humor was meant for the adults....went right over the kids heads, but not offensive in anyway. The sets were good, dancing and singing were great. The donkey was my favorite and amazed at the Asian baby Shrek and baby bear. So cute and talented. Great seats with my Red Velvet membership. Goldstar ROCKS!
