the maryland shakespeare festival hit hyattsville with a
short, but hilarious warm-up pre-performance
and energetic performance of romeo and juliet.
it only added to the ambiance that as the play developed, dusk slowly settled in.
there is nothing like a live performance.
although the kids — and even i — couldn’t understand all of shakespeare’s nuanced genius,
there is nothing like live performance
where an actor so immersed in her/his character
can look you in the eye
while reciting her/his lines with such vigor.
