When: Aug. 2-19 2012
Price: $12 to $30
www.ohioshakespeare.com
Not even the Bard himself could have imagined a more evocative setting than the new Elizabethan stage at Akron’s Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens. Modeled after Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London, the permanent playing area provides a natural backdrop for the Ohio Shakespeare Festival’s open-air performances — and lends power and authenticity to productions like the upcoming Merchant of Venice. Featuring veteran actor Robert Hawkes in the role of Shylock, the show previews on August 2, opens August 3, and continues in performance through August 19. Tickets are $12 to $30 at 330-673-8761 or ohioshakespeare.com. Stan Hywet Hall is at 714 North Portage Path in Akron.
