My real reason for visiting San Antonio was to see Shakespeare in the Park. Tonight’s performance was “The Winter’s Tale”. There were kings, queens, lovers, dancers, and even a bear. The story is a good one, so go see the play if you ever have the chance. The Arneson River Theater is magical in itself – with people walking by on the Riverwalk and realizing they are suddenly on the front row of a play, boats full of tourists snapping selfies as they cruise by, ducks floating by and taking no notice to the proceedings, and the lovely outdoor theater. Too much fun!
Austin Shakespeare presented “The Taming of the Shrew” at the Zilker Hillside Theater. The setting for the play was the city of Austin in the 1890’s and the surrounding countryside. So, of course, everyone had to wear boots and hats. It was a fun version of Shakespeare, and the play goes on through the month of May if you like outdoor theater, and find yourself in Austin.
