Shakespeare in the Park – Queens 2010

Mid summer nights dream 2 Each year, the Hip to Hip theatre company performs abridged
versions of Shakespeare plays and performs them throughout Queens. Last year we
took the kids and I was pleasantly surprised at how well it held my daughters
attention. We were able to get front row seats at the Forest Hills Band Shell
and watch while lively performers made Shakespeare come to life. This August
Hip to Hip is touring all around Queens. Here is the lowdown:

 

Performances

 

Taming of the Shrew

The quintessential battle of the sexes—this send-up of the
institution of marriage, the rifts between men and women and the rough journey
toward love is full of disguise, deception and devilment.

 

Macbeth

Perhaps the world’s greatest psychological
thriller—haunted by a supernatural prophecy and spurred by his wife’s
ambitions, a brave soldier dares to tempt fate only to be destroyed by the very
power he seeks.
