There's Shakespeare in the title, but we couldn't help but notice the majority of the plays in this year's season were not written by the bard. We understand the need to keep the festival fresh and lively, not to mention the need to take advantage of the talents of the cast and crew.
But, come on, if you're going to use the name of the most-well-known playwright in history in the name of your company, don't you think you should at least have the majority of your plays by, well, said famous playwright? If it were the Stoppard Festival or the Mamet Festival, we'd expect to see a little Inspector Hound or even some Sexual Perversity in Chicago. Just an idea.
