To Some Ears Unrecounted 5/14/10 (This Week in Performance Reviews)

Every Friday, the Shakespeare Standard will post a comprehensive list of performance reviews for the week.  Below you will find this week’s list, including review and theatre company links.  Enjoy!

A little bit of High School performances, and a couple reviews of major works going on at the moment (e.g. Bell Shakespeare and Chicago Shakespeare.)  All in all, another busy week in Shakespearean Performance!
