CSF makes more of lesser Shakespeare.

Arrival of play collection links widespread appeal of the Bard's legacy

Directed by CSF veteran Geoffrey Kent, “Comedy” is not your typical take on the Bard. Unless, that is, you consider baguette-wielding debutantes, cross-dressing can-can dancers and a sneaky rendition of Vince Guaraldi’s “Christmas Time is Here” on the accordion to be typical Shakespearean fare.

The Colorado Shakespeare Festival's current production of the show, directed by Jim Helsinger, is an ideal fit into the troupe's 2016 season.

Given the rare productions of Cymbeline, director Jim Helsinger's current staging quenches our thirst like a spring in the middle of a desert for its light, comedic touch and fairy tale atmosphere.

This is a wonderful play, full of insights into human nature, theatrically presented by a talented cast of players.
