Photo Flash: First Look at Great Lakes Theater's THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR
Great Lakes Theater (GLT) will commence its 2014-15 season with Shakespeare's battle of the sexes, The Merry Wives of Windsor, presented in rotating repertory with Boublil and Schönberg's Tony Award-winning musical epic, LES MISERABLES (September 26 - November 9, 2014). BroadwayWorld has a first look at the 'Merry Wives' cast in action below!
Tracy Young, who most recently directed Great Lakes Theater's acclaimed productions of The Imaginary Invalid and The Taming of the Shrew, will return to direct the company's season-opening production of The Merry Wives of Windsor.
Meet the rotund rascal Sir John Falstaff and the wise wives of Windsor in one of Shakespeare's most raucous comedies. With an ego as big as his voracious appetite, Falstaff conspires to woo the two wealthiest married ladies in town and pocket their riches. However, Mistress Ford and Mistress Page devise a scheme of their own to teach him a well-deserved lesson in Wooing 101. Join us and feast on a hilariously magnificent treat of monogamously artful deceit.
