Park Tour Logo (1)August is right around the corner and that means the return of FREE performances by the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company in parks around our region.  Michael and I love going to Cincy Shakes to see shows in their intimate theater, but come August the company spreads their wings and performs in front of the public in some of the most gorgeous parks and open spaces around town.  I’m looking forward to packing up the family and a picnic dinner and catching a performance or two next month!  To see the complete schedule visit The Cincinnati Shakespeare Company Website.
