Shore­side Shake­speare

Where Vancouver - - Here & Now - —Sheri Radford

TO SEP 22 If the last time you ex­pe­ri­enced Shake­speare was while doz­ing through a high school English class, then it’s time to give his plays an­other try. Bard on the Beach (page 79) breathes new life into clas­sics such as Mac­beth (pic­tured) and As You Like It, this year’s two main­stage productions, by in­cor­po­rat­ing mu­sic and cos­tumes from dif­fer­ent eras. And every­thing is staged in tents in Vanier Park, with a back­drop of ocean and moun­tains, guar­an­tee­ing a live­lier ex­pe­ri­ence than any stuffy English class.
