    Finally got to see this romantic comedy on Friday night, with lots of others, including several neighbors. It was typically funny, along with some musical numbers, and a lot of slapstick comedic actions in the 2nd half with the Pyramus & Thisbe subplot play to be presented to the Duke and his party. A very dedicated troupe of Shakespearean actors in the Old Pueblo.

  2. a updated version of julius caesar would be more interesting ;but less safe.
