CSC's Othello opened recently, this years' free offering of Shakespeare on the Boston Common.
Be sure to go in and see it!
I'm so glad that CSC and Steve Maler are still around producing this wonderful event for everyone: it marks Boston as a world-class city that cares about the Arts, and I really can't imagine a Boston summer without it.
My friend Marianna Bassham is playing Desdemona, and I'm sure she's wonderful. Also, James Waterson, who was in Julius Caesar with Tommy, is playing Iago.
I performed in three past shows at CSC, and they were always a great deal of fun, sort of like summer camp, only in iambic pentameter.
And full disclosure: Tommy and I first began our courtship during 12th Night. (He was Malvolio and I was Sir Andrew).
So, in a way, I owe my marriage to CSC.
Even better than performing is being in the audience: there is something really magical about being outdoors, at night, surrounded by people sitting on blankets, watching Shakespeare.
