Shakespeare in the Park came Sunday evening with a traditional staging of Julius Caesar (though some of the traditionally male roles were played by women, this was not the gender-reversed version of the play that the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company staged back in April). Just as the show was about to start on the lawn of the Harry Whiting Brown Community Center, a rainstorm came through sending players and audience scurrying into the nearby Scouthouse, where the play was ultimately staged. Of course, by the time the players were finished setting up inside, the storm had passed, and the skies were clearing. But the show went on inside, where, in my opinion, the audience was better able to hear the actors, without being drowned out occasionally by passing trains. :-)

All in all, a most enjoyable evening of Shakespearean theater.
