Idaho Shakespeare Festival eyes old Macy's building

Staff Pick

It was the most exclusive performance that the Idaho Shakespeare Festival ever gave. Boise Weekly (and the rest of the general public) was ushered from the room in June as a full contingent from ISF waxed poetic to the Greater Boise Auditorium District board of directors about its hopes for a new headquarters and performance space at the site of the old Macy's building at 10th and Idaho streets, which has sat empty since March 2010. It's been nearly a year since BW first reported that ISF was eyeballing the downtown space, but an increasing number of pieces will need to align in the plan's puzzle, including turning the second through fifth floors of the same building into 62 apartments. Shakespeare himself wrote, "Time is very slow for those who wait."
