Re: “Shakespeare in the Park puts an ambitious Civil War spin on one of the Bard's best efforts

Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail.

Re: “Shakespeare in the Park puts an ambitious Civil War spin on one of the Bard's best efforts

Shakespeare in the Park is a great Nashville tradition. This is a great show, not to be missed. The humor is nicely balanced with the drama of Henry's wartime leadership (as Shakespeare clearly intended). The NSF troupe does a great job - rising to the challenge of mastering the various accents without sounding silly. The director deserves credit alongside the actors (as well as a number of fine accent coaches!). Just a quibble on the review - the tableux at the beginning shows the aftermath of the Civil War. Confederates among the ruins, the tensions with newly freed slaves, and in an thought-provoking twist, the homecoming of a southerner in a Union uniform. He's the one who plays Henry V. Much to ponder there.
Special kudos to the chorus of two women who split the lines and comment on the action and each other. They carry the audience along with them. Pay attention to them, and you can navigate from England to Harfleur to the camp of the French, the camp of the English, and the battlefield of Agincourt. Well done NSF!
