Attending Shakespeare's The Winter Tale under a full moon (oooooo!) Riverside Theater is having a free performance this weekend. It's very well done. They portray the weightiness of the play. I won't give the plot away for those who haven't seen or read it but I learned to check my assumptions. There is a "Green Show" comedy for a few minutes before the show starts. All told about 3.5 hours of entertainment with an intermission. The stage is a fun way of being part of the original Globe Theater. They do good sound affects on the sound system. The actors are not mic'd so it would've been better to sit closer. Very well done. Nice night out. You get a $ off 1 item for each survey filled out. They have beer and Haagen Daz and more that you would expect Shakespeare to offer. In August they are doing A Comedy of Errors, also free.
Great stage, made for a lovey evening for watching a play.
Very cool feature in the middle of City Park.
Never been to a show there but it is a pretty cool venue.
Rarely used outdoor auditorium
