The Merry Wives of Windsor (Theatricum Botanicum)
Wives may be merry, and yet honest too.
Theatricum Botanicum puts on an honest production of The Merry Wives of Windsor.
Shakespeare’s buoyant comedy, re-set in 1950s small-town America to a score of rockin’ ’50s tunes. When opportunistic schemer and womanizer John Falstaff blows into town on his Harley and tries to woo two wealthy women at once, the townspeople gleefully plot his comeuppance. Things might seem picture perfect in “Small Town U.S.A”... but just underneath the surface, the fight for women’s rights has begun in full force.
