This is the last week to catch Davis Shakespeare Festival’s excellent production, the freshest interpretation of this classic Shakespeare comedy seen locally in years. The story moves to a university town, populated with students riding everywhere on bicycle. It’s an excellent concept, backed by eye-appealing costumes, good original music and strong performances as the eager kids fall in and out of love (with some supernatural meddling), yielding amusing results.
