50 Years of Shakespeare in the Park

Half a century of glorious (and free) Shakespeare in the summer and the open air.  Here's a nice comment by one of the artistic directors:
"It was the idea that culture in a democracy should be the property of all the people," [Oskar] Eustis says, "regardless of their educational attainment, regardless of their financial status or class status — that everybody had the right to own the best that our culture had to offer. And it's a beautiful vision that still lives."
*kisses for the Swan of Avon*
