Taming of the Shrew - Maynardville

Last night of the summer season annual Shakespeare open air production. Played for laughs with lots of slap-stick which helped dilute what is otherwise a pretty odious plot. My least favourite of the plays, but well, if cheekily, localised in the prologue. I'm not sure what I think about mics as a rule, but last night they were definitely needed as the south-easter was in full flow/blow and it was actually cold enough to need a jumper, if not a blanket. I look forward to next year's production.
