DENVER POST: CU’s Colorado Shakespeare Festival lineup

This season’s lineup will open with Shakespeare’s farcical “The Comedy of Errors” (set in 1930s Paris) and close with a one-night-only performance of “Henry VI, Part 2” (an “original practices” production, meaning the actors prepare their roles in isolation with minimal stage direction), both at the Mary Rippon Outdoor Theatre.

The 10-week festival also includes the regional premiere of Bill Cain’s “Equivocation,” along with “Troilus and Cressida,” and “Cymbeline”…continuing reading Joanne Ostrow’s blog in The Denver Post.
