It's a good idea to get early and score seats up front. We thought we did, but then a couple decided to sit down right in front of us in packable chairs!

Shakespeare outdoors in the summer, under the stars and the beautiful trees in Oak Park... what could be finer? In my opinion not one of Shakespeare's greatest works, but the staging and acting was well done. Only problem I had was the sound...continued

The play was great but the mosquitoes were terrible. I assume they spray the grounds on nites when they are having the play and if they don't, they certainly need to!!
