Three reasons not to miss this midsummer madness
1. “It’s live Shakespeare!” says Rustic Mechanicals’ Jason Young, artistic director for the Mechanicals’ home, Vintage Theatre Company of Clarksburg. “We haven’t been able to say that in a pandemic’s age.”
2. “It’s filled with music and laughter,” Young adds. We can all use some of that this summer.
3. The Rustic Mechanicals are West Virginia’s only professional Shakespeare troupe, and their love for the Bard is infectious.
Twelfth Night plays for free at 7 p.m. on Saturday. Better a witty fool than a foolish wit—don’t miss it.
