This show has been everywhere lately, and for good reason. Who doesn’t love gossip and trickery, especially when it’s Shakespeare style? It’s like Elizabethan reality TV, and with this particular production, the U of L theater department has a lot up its sleeve. “The production will be a modern take on the story,” says director James Tompkins. “We have a cast of 22 who are looking forward to engaging the audience in the fun.” He assures us that even if you’re familiar with this script, there will still be lots of surprises. Also, graduate student actors Lauren Street, Jocelyn Matsuo and Jake Beamer will be performing in lead roles as part of their MFA degrees. —Jane Mattingly
