Park it, Bardy!

The 12th season of ETC’s Shakespeare in the Park shows opens with the Bard’s comedy, Love’s Labours Lost. When King Ferdinand badgers three male students into forsaking the company of women, he inadvertently sets up comical deceits and mishaps, including such Shakespearean gimmicks as delightfully devious women, disguises, mistaken identities, switcheroos and multiple marriages. Opens Wednesday, July 18, at 8 p.m. Runs two weeks only. Opening Wednesday, August 1, is Arthur Miller‘s poignant drama, All My Sons.
