Top-Notch Romeo and Juliet Production Ends on Sunday in Lansing

The Sunsets with Shakespeare production of Romeo and Juliet closes with its last show on Sunday, August 17, 2008, at 6:30 p.m. at Hunter Park on Lansing's east side off of Kalamazoo Street. I finally had a chance to catch the performance yesterday and highly recommend it. Bring a blanket or lawn chair. The suggested donation is a bargain at $2. This last show is a make-up performance because of rain cancellations last week.

I give Romeo and Juliet a double thumbs up for an excellent cast and performance, and high marks for a relaxing, comfortable outdoor setting at Hunter Park. This was my first experience with Shakespeare at sunset, and in a park. It was thoroughly entertaining -- a great way to spend a cool summer evening. I can't wait to do it again in the future.

Director Todd A. Heywood should be commended for a fine production and the cast of performers should be proud of its strong performance.

Don't miss the last performance on Sunday.
