A Late Summer Night’s Stroll

We try to attend the Shakespeare in the Park performance in Forest Park every year (last year), so when covid ruined that I was excited when those geniuses came up with a socially distanced outdoor walking tour version instead.

"Shakespeare in the Park like never before. An 80-minute jaunt full of poetry, music and art. Loosely inspired by Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, “A Late Summer Night’s Stroll” puts you at the center of the story: four lovers’ escape to an enchanted wood and the magical night of transformation that follows. A socially-distant self-guided tour of iconic spots and hidden gems, featuring custom installations, open-air performances and charming vignettes."

Doug and Linda were in our gang.

I had assumed beforehand that it was just going to be the same actors but spread out in small groups. This was fun because I didn't even know what type of art to expect: sometimes it was music, sometimes dance, acting, but always fun and usually somehow related to the story. There were times when I definitely had to refer to the program to understand what the heck was going on but it was entertaining nonetheless.

The Saint Louis Art Museum was looking fine af.
