The Ranking of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival 2018 Season by Ozdachs the Elder
Three-Way Tie for Best Show of 2018, in alphabetical order:
- Henry V
- The Book of Will
- Love’s Labor’s Lost
- The Way the Mountain Moved
- Sense and Sensibility
Not seen, due to smoke cancelation, Romeo and Juliet.
The first four shows are five-star, must-see events. Almost everyone in our group agreed.
#5, Othello, was universally loved by those of us who saw it early in the season. The reviews from mid-season on were mixed. I worry that the cast changed its performance along the way.
#6, Henry V is a good show, worth seeing.
Nos. 7 & 8 are fun nights out. Go see them!
The bottom of the list are both turn-your-tickets-back-in-and-save-yourself bad.
At least according to Ozdachs the Elder.
