While raising children, Denise Meagher, a returning area native, became a published freelance writer, voice over talent and enthusiastic community theatre participant. She loves reading, writing, traveling, time with friends and most of her family and empty-nesting with husband, Ted.
Is Shakespeare too lofty, too difficult to understand? Honestly, that's what I thought.
Up until very recently my Shakespeare experience was limited to being forced to read one of his works in a high school English class, watch one high school production and a few screen renditions. So, when I heard Waukesha Civic Theatre was presenting Twelfth Night, I was less than enthusiastic; and even more so after watching an extremely awful and horribly boring production via a library DVD. I didn't even want to blog this show!
