They’ll be presenting Titus Andronicus – a veritable bloodbath of a play and a personal favorite – and The Tempest – much more date-friendly and famous.

    Just an FYI ~ I went to both performances and they were truly OUTSTANDING. My only complaint was that it was freaking hot… even in the covered seating area.

    However, I was especially happy to see the theater filled-to-capacity along with a large amount of people hanging out on the lawn. I suppose what truly touched my little black heart was to see so many people enjoying live theater performances!

    Bravo!!!
