Maybe they are copying the Disney idea of a theme park known to
Texans-Wet and Wild.

What a drip.

Scott Crozier asked for more information about Joe Calarco's current
production of MND in Washington. The theater has a web site
(http://ShakespeareDC.org/) which includes commentary. I won't see the
production until next week, but restructuring the script to put "Pyramus
and Thisbe" in the middle rather than at the end strikes me as
diminishing the play. The Athenian lovers are, after all, pretty thin
characters, whether fully clothed or in their underwear.
