Shakespeare & Co., in Lenox, right around the corner from Brook Farm Inn, has announced its program for the ’09 season. Wow! It will be the longest season ever — May 27 through March 14, 2010. There are two theaters on the Shakespeare campus, plus the outdoor theater, and the program has something for everyone. Hamlet, Othello, Twelfth Night, Romeo and Juliet. Then there are contemporary plays: Shirley Valentine, Golda’s Balcony and more. We can’t wait to take our grandchildren to “Toad of Toad Hall” at the Outdoor Bankside Festival.
