Last night i went to Shakespeare's Case, the Nashville Shakespeare Festival's winter production. The last two years I've seen The Tempest and Richard III both of which were quite good. This play, written by three actors, two of which were in the performance, has Shakespeare himself defending his plays against the charge that they are boring, irrelevant, and outdated. It is a little participatory, as the audience is the jury. Shakespeare even apologizes to all of us who had to memorize some long passage for school! It is great fun; recommended! If you are in Nashville, it runs through January 30. Or, if you can't make it, the Nashville Shakespeare Festival will gladly take a donation!
