Verona meets Orinda

A few days ago a visiting friend and I ventured over to Orinda for Cal Shakes’ The Verona Project, my 41st show of this year. I see the theatre has made a point of highlighting the musicality of the production via YouTube in these videos:

Practicing a song:

“Making of” video:

This production was like jumping into a perfect temperature ocean sea of Shakespeare. The essence of Shakespeare’s writing was there, but with a decidedly modern touch.

I want to say more, so I will intend to come back and revise this post. I wish I had written it immediately following the show… but the power outage made that option not feasible.


About JP

Once upon a time, there was a boy from New England. He grew up with a sense of adventure, loving to travel around the Northeast region. He could always count on the presence of a Buddhist community in his family and friends. Later, those interests merged. His sense of adventure continued to grow, expanding across Europe and then back the other direction across the USA.
