Best Bard Boosters

Idaho Shakespeare Festival's 2014 season

Staff Pick

This season, Idaho Shakespeare Festival presented what seemed like a lineup of old chestnuts. Of course Shakespeare's venerable plays (As You Like It, Merry Wives of Windsor) are old

were written nearly half a millennium ago. The non-Bard offerings, however, Les Miserables (1980), Deathtrap (1978) and Steel Magnolias (1987) aren't so much old as dated. But in the nearly four decades ISF has been staging plays, we've learned to trust those at its helm, and, once again, our faith has been rewarded. Everything was spot on: directing, acting, costuming, lighting, sound and even the groups of volunteers. The 2014 ISF season was an all-around outstanding experience, and there's no doubt 2015 will be as good, if not better. Trust us; we trust them.
