GSC's Merry Wives of Windsor
delivers merriment ... and more

My previous post was dedicated to the most recent Indianapolis theatrical performance I photographed, First Folio Productions' presentation of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. This post is about the other Indy production I recently photographed -- Garfield Shakespeare Company's turn at the bard's The Merry Wives of Windsor.

As I mentioned in the previous post, I posted the recent shoot first because at the time Much Ado was still live, and there was a chance anything I could present could help stir interest in the final weekend of shows. Merry Wives had been over for a week at the time, but presenting my images at this late date isn't mean to suggest it was not worthy of immediate attention. A photographer can focus on just one shoot at a time.

Those of you who have followed this blog for a while might remember that I've been shooting GSC's shows since fall 2010. The company's productions in spring are always held indoors at the Garfield Park Arts Center; fall shows are performed outdoors in the nearby MacAllister Amphitheater. The Merry Wives of Windsor was another winner for the theater troupe.

A full gallery of images from the show can be found at my site at SmugMug.
