Our first production this season was an evening of elegance and beauty as Starry Night Rep presented A SHAKESPEARE SOIREE. The women of the Starry Night ensemble performed famous speeches of Shakespeare’s diverse female characters. The magnificent poetry of the greatest playwright in the English language was enhanced by music and colorful projections and commentaries on the actresses who have played Juliet, Olivia, Lady Macbeth, Portia and so many more over the last 400 years.
This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum know as 'the relationship.' Act I explores the journey from dating and waiting to love and marriage, while Act II reveals the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set. This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, to those who have dared to ask, 'Say, what are you doing Saturday night?'
