Two Gentlemen of Verona and A Dog

Last night I attended a very lovely performance of the Shakespeare play “Two Gentlemen of Verona.”  It wasn’t the first time I attended an outdoor theater performance and the last one I attended was also Shakespeare.

The other one I attended was purely performance related and quite nice.  This one was much funnier.  On the stage were really good actors speaking the exact words of Shakespeare, but they were dressed up in 1950s (or 1960s) outfits.  It all looked a bit Mad Men to me.

And the aforementioned dog.  Well, I went with my friends who have a dog.  The whole thing made the dog quite uneasy.  He spent the entire night shifting around and trying to find a new position.  One he just sat down on my friend.  Another time he sat down on me.  Every clap caused a change of position and every dog within a 200 foot radius caused another change of position.  It was pretty funny.  We kept trying to pet him to calm him down, but he just really didn’t care.

Well, I was really far away from the stage, so they got creative.  The ones where the participants are really blown out are the ones I took from far away.  I was kind of going for an artistic/poster art feeling with those.  For some of the others, the positions the people struck were just perfect, so I shot away as soon as I could.

Enjoy:
