Last night, I had the great pleasure to be invited to a performance of Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream. Together with a small group of people who occasionally advise the theater on issues regarding fund raising or relationship management, we were privileged to hear an introduction to the performance by the director, Theu Boermans. He started off by saying that not only are we witnessing a world financial crisis, but also a ‘crisis of love’, and that his interpretation of this classic play was an attempt to remedy that latter crisis. I thought that was a lovely new perspective to the more prosaic contributions we normally hear. I can thoroughly recommend the performance. It was magical and unforgettable.
