    i enjoyed it except for the lack of mics for several cast members

      I agree. This happened last year at Othelo but I am not sure if the sound is a matter of the venue or of SID.

    I see u waving the American flag Mefi but I already found a seat. I'll try to make my way over to say hello later.

      Yay! I was so happy to see you!

    I love Detroit! Shakespeare in Detroit delighted us with this performance. Puck and the lion were my favorite characters :)

    By 8, when I arrived at the park, there was a big line and we had to settle for a place on the side. 6 of us sat together and we got to say hello to another 3, which was fabulous. I'm sure that there were a few more in the crowd that missed the flag and sign and my green shirt, but what matters here is that all enjoyed the show. So, thanks to all for coming.

    Don't forget to RSVP for our next date with Shakespeare later this month!
