Bootleg Shakespeare is back

By Stephanie Merry

The Capital Fringe Festival may be over, but you can still get your fill of inventive theater thanks to Taffety Punk. The company is back with its annual Bootleg Shakespeare production, this time staging "The Two Noble Kinsmen." For those new to Bootleg, the idea involves a single performance staged after just one day of rehearsal (although the cast will know their characters, and thus their lines, ahead of time). It may sound like a recipe for disaster, but Taffety Punk excels at making the most of few resources. In fact, last year's installment, "Troilus and Cressida," was so popular that patrons were turned away. Expecting another packed house, the group recommends that theater-goers show up about an hour before curtain. At best, it will be a free evening of entertaining theater and, at worst, a comedy of errors. What could be more Shakespearean?
