In my more naive days when I thought I would be spending my summer in New York City with a fabulous internship, I made a list of “Things to do in NYC.” On that list? Shakespeare in the Park. I’m a Shakespeare fan girl and took an entire year of Shakespeare classes my junior year, and it was nice to get to see a play performed live for once instead of just reading off the page. This performance of King Lear was pretty great, as far as evil sisters and deaths-upon-deaths go.
It was the first social event of a club I’ve been a part of for a few years called Persona here at the University of Arizona, and we publish a literary magazine of undergraduate work every year. Even though only board members and friends of ours showed up, it was a pretty great time, even if our butts started to hurt by the end of it.
