Shakespeare is Alive and Well in Lenox

Shakespeare and Company’s first home was in the gardens and drawing rooms of The Mount, Edith Wharton’s estate. In 2000 they moved to a thirty-acre campus just down the road in Lenox, Mass. Today Tina Packer’s creation is one of the finest resident theatre companies in America. We try to catch at least one show every year. This year we saw a very impressive Richard III. One of Shakespeare’s more entertaining history plays, Richard is a portrait of a villain you love to hate. John Douglas Thompson, whom we saw as a luminous Othello last year, played Richard to perfection, and the rest of the company was equally impressive.
