Subject: Cleveland Shakespeare Festival
Also to interest to members living or traveling to the Cleveland/Akron
area this summer:
Now in its fifth season, the Cleveland Shakespeare Festival has remained
true to its ideals: spirited - and often irreverent - alfresco
Shakespeare, fast-paced and in contemporary clothing, offered free to
folks stretching out on a lawn before sunset.
Under the artistic leadership of Lawrence Nehring, CSF offers Prince
Hal, Falstaff and their cronies in an omnibus "Henry IV," compressing
both parts into one performance.
It is directed by Nehring and stars Mark Cipra, Mark Ross and Jess
Its second production takes the audience from Parma to the Forest of
Arden in the gender-bending romantic comedy "As You Like It," directed
by Jerrold Scott and starring Cassandra Vincent as Rosalind and Patrick
Jones as Orlando.
Vincent is the Cleveland Shakespeare Festival's first Equity actor, and
all of its actors are from this area.
"Henry IV" runs July 5-7, 18, 20, 26 and 28 and Aug. 1 and 3. "As You
Like It" runs July 12-14, 19, 21, 25 and 27 and Aug. 2 and 4.
Performances are divided between Shaker Heights Colonnade, 3450 Lee
Road, and the Cuyahoga Community College Western Campus, 11000 Pleasant
Valley Road, Parma. All performances begin at 7:00pm and are FREE and
open to the public.
