of Morgan State University:
Last evening, I attended Theatre Morgan's production of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. It was excellent. I especially appreciated the delivery of dialogue by our Morgan thespians which sounded much more contemporary and uniquely intelligible in presentation than any other Shakespearean production that I could remember. With the 1920's theme to the costumes and the very colorful set with an almost psychedelic painted stage, there was a visual feast for the eyes. I especially liked the period jazz music diced into the production to give a reprise from the Old English prose. To see our students spewing out Shakespeare is something to behold. Shirley Basfield-Dunlap has done a masterful job in directing our students in this production. If you get a chance, please stop by to see the remaining performances next weekend on Friday, February 28, at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, March 1, 2:00 & & 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, March 2, at 3:00 pm. See photos attached from the production. Hope to see you there.
