Into the breach

I attended last evening the first of two plays produced in Forest Park by the Shakespeare Festival Saint Louis.

Henry IV was on the roster, in a stirring performance that just got better and better as the evening went on.

Of course one is especially pleased to see one’s own music theory students on stage in a professional production!

Tonight will be the second of the plays, the beloved Henry V of ‘We happy few’ fame.

My picnic dinner last evening was cold fried chicken, pasta salad, and some cucumbers in mango dressing.  Intermission included cheese and crackers.  I didn’t go all out, but this was a nice way to spend a late-Spring evening!
