Romantic Nights

What is better than a picnic with your love? A picnic where you get to see a Shakespearean play while cuddling with your love. My wonderful boyfriend, Richard, took my to see Shakespeare on the Sound. A theater company in CT puts on an outdoor play every Summer. This Summer was Othello, one of my favorite Shakespearean tragedies. We picked up a wonderful dinner at Whole Foods, spread a blanket on the grass, and had the loveliest evening. We had a space right up front, and even got to interact with the actors. Cassio deposited his wine bottle right in front of us, and Iago pretended to hit Richard with it, along with a few other men in the row. I've never seen a live Shakespearean play before, and it's an experience I'd love to repeat many times over.
