Shakespeare in the Park

Shakespeare in the Park Nashville

Need something fun to do this weekend?

I have your answer.

I had never been to Nashville’s Shakespeare in the Park festival before. But the weather yesterday was so very perfect that I couldn’t imagine spending the evening anywhere but outdoors.

So, naturally, I packed a picnic basket:

silly goose sandwich picnicPINK PANTHER: house smoked beef brisket, gorgonzola, kale, carrot &  cabbage slaw, horseradish aioli, toasted hoagie.

Patrick and I arrived around 6:00 to eat our picnic and stake out a prime location. There is always an opening musical performance by a local musician that starts at 6:30. And the show starts at 7:30.

The cast performed A Midsummer Nights’ Dream in a way that brings Shakespeare to life. Brad Brown plays Theseus with a perfect rendition of a Charleston accent. Savannah Frazier, as Helena, even incorporates her cell phone into each scene, in a way that makes it seem Shakespeare almost scripted it so.

The suggested donation is just $10, and what started as just a night to be outside, ended up being one of the best dates we’ve ever been on!

The show goes on every Thursday-Sunday until September 15th at Centennial Park.

Don’t miss it!
