Shakespeare In The Park(ing) Lot

Shortly after our visit to MoMA, we met up with good friends to see Richard III. But this was no ordinary performance of the famous Shakespeare history. This was Shakespeare in the Park(ing) Lot.

The lighting director was a couple of utility lights. The props were minimal. Cars drove behind the play, and trash blew around to the side of the performance. We sat on carpet squares from the dollar store. And you know what? The free performance of one of Shakespeare's most difficult plays was pretty damn good.

I am a little disappointed that I won't see Taming of the Shrew in the Park(ing) Lot.
