The Taming of the Shrew
Houston is currently experiencing a freak spell of nice weather. Temperatures are in the low 70s in the evenings, and the humidity is quite moderate. Of course, no weather pattern can change the fact that Houston is located around 30° N latitude, so the sun still beats down during the afternoon.
But even so, record lows this year mean that this is a rare August when outdoor theater is feasible in Houston. This works out perfectly for the Houston Shakespeare Festival‘s 30th anniversary. Last night we saw the Taming of the Shrew, re-set in the Wild Wild West, complete with the jingle from The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. It was hilarious. I would say “highly recommended,” but that was closing night.
