I'm a bit of a theater freak (chair the board of an Off-broadway theater, etc.). So I wanted to see the Shakespeare Tavern while I was in Atlanta. I love the idea and the experience -- somewhat original production, food was reasonable, good sightlines, and Shakespeare with all the intimidation removed. The play that evening was Comedy of Errors, one of the earliest plays and a short one and a farcical one. Atlanta Shakespeare played up the farcical elements with lots of physical humor. Probably the correct artistic choice, but the trade-off was a ittle loss of the beauty of the language (yes, even in CoE). Again, not a major fault; it was the logical director decision. But it would be interesting to see what they do with a major tragedy.
