This Sunday: Shakespeare in the Park
In case Opera in the Park last Sunday didn’t satisfy your hankering for high culture in the great outdoors, this Sunday features Shakespeare in the Park. The price is free, the play is the little-produced Pericles, Prince of Tyre, and it will take place in the Presidio, at the Main Post Parade Ground Lawn. (Man, that’s about all the alliteration I can handle.) Apart from its low cost, outdoor pretentiousness has one huge advantage over the indoor variety: a picnic lunch with several friends and almost as many bottles of wine. (If that’s your style. Tea is awesome too.) Pericles is not a well-known play, but I remember enjoying the Shakespeare Santa Cruz production back in — gulp — 1996. Oy vey.
Anyway, the show starts at 2:30, but you’ll probably want to get there early to lay your blanket out in a good spot. Dress in layers — but I don’t have to tell you that.
