Default Stratford Festival?

Just wondering if any of you fellas have gone to the Stratford Festival this year?

(Sorry Doc, does this post not belong here?)

I'm going to see Hamlet very shortly. I've heard awesome things about from alot of people. I believe taming of the shrew is playing as well, but not as big a fan of it.

I'd agree with that generally, but Shakespeare is cool.

Yeah we can only afford to see one this year (still paying off those wedding bills) so we're picking Hamlet. When are you going to see it? I don't know anyone who has seen it yet, so I'm relying on reviews from the Star etc. and all those have been pretty positive.

Likely at the end of this month, I believe July 31st? I just found out they're doing Crabb's last tape as well which is an interesting play as well. Damn....decisions, decisions.

Oh and SJ, I know Taming is great in that way, but it doesn't lend itself to great acting. I once saw a movie with Keanu Reeves in Taming of the Shrew. Needless to say, it sucked.

Shaw and my great grandfather were friends believe it or not...the family has some hand written letters from him, we are constantly being contacted by the Niagra region about giving them up, but I don't think its going to happen.
