Had a delicious pre-show dinner at Sonoma.

The theater itself is beautiful and the set for "The Winter's Tale" fun and interesting. But the seats we got along the walls were wooden and incruciating to sit in for 3 hours.

I was very impressed with the production as a whole. There were a few little theatre-geek things that irked me, but the cast was fantastic and my seats were really great. I definitely recommend this show to anyone who loves Shakespeare.

Description

Shakespeare’s Late Romance is filled with the fantasy of a fairy tale. Suspecting his wife Hermione and his friend Polixenes of infidelity, King Leontes is driven to acts of jealous rage. Years later, a miraculous turn of events brings a chance for redemption. What was lost is found and, with it, new wellsprings of happiness.
