Andy at Bard on The Beach
Posted August 14, 2012on:
Andy was invited to join me and my Bard Buddies to attend a performance of King John at Bard on The Beach. Turns out Andy is a Shakespeare aficionado.
As per tradition, we started the day with a picnic lunch at English Bay. Andy was happy to be included.
After the wonderful picnic, we attended the afternoon performance which was exceptional. Scott Bellis gave us an outstanding performance of the weak, tortured youngest son of Henry II and Elinor of Aquitaine. This is a play that is seldom performed so I was pleased to have had the opportunity to see it. Attending Bard on the Beach with my friends is one of the highlights of my summer and the best value for entertainment in Vancouver. The medieval costumes were exquisite and all the performances stellar. Attending these plays in tents transports one back to Shakespeare’s time. We have been attending these performances for the last 16 years. If you are ever in Vancouver, in the summer, you must take in a play.
Andy seemed to have a good time, loved English Bay and enjoyed all the attention he got from my friends. He just couldn’t stop smiling.
Have you seen a good performance of a Shakespeare play recently?
