Have the option of attending one of two outdoor Shakespeare plays (in a botanical garden setting), A Midsummer Night's Dream or As You Like It. Haven't seen/read either of them.

Which would you recommend? Also - would be taking the girlfriend.

go to both

i have to say watching shakespeare uninitiated is a little hard. i watched midsummer night's dream outside before i read the play and i hard time following the plot or the dialogue. i watched hamlet and king lear outside and having already read the plays several times, it was very very entertaining to watch it in real life.

still a good experience. seeing midsummer night's dream made me go read it.

Thanks for that. I figure Midsummer would probably be the more popular one (given the garden setting).

The productions aren't until late March, so I'll have some time to read one/both of the plays beforehand.
