Celebrity Sightings at GRSF

Great River Shakespeare Festival

Kim Martin-Cotton, who played many of the lead rolls in the first 4 years of GRSF and swordsman Jacques Roy were in the audience for Tuesday night's Othello as well as Wednesday's production of Titus Andronicus. It feels like having old friends in the house, even though I've never really met either of them outside of the theater. Carla Noack, Rosalind in As You Like It and Kate in Taming of the Shrew, took in the apprentice play yesterday. (I also saw her at Othello earlier in the month.)

Commonweal company members David Hennessey and Eric Bunge took in Tuesday's Othello on their night off from a busy summer season in Lanesboro.

Has it come to this? No reviews at Minnesota Theatre, just gossip? No excuses—I simply haven't gotten the reviews out of my head and on to paper. Below, I have a preview of A comedy of Errors that I wrote in May or June but never got around to posting.

The Great River Shakespeare Festival ends Sunday, August 1.
