The Merry Wives of Windsor


It's a great time to get even! Some appetites never go out of style. The pursuit of money is bound to backfire when the targets are smarter than their gold-digging schemer. Falstaff’s dubious plan to woo Windsor’s wealthy housewives is met with hilarious retaliation, when the ladies devise a plot to teach him a lesson he won’t soon forget. The comedic comeuppance is an absolute treat in Shakespeare’s delightful comedy on love, money, deception, and the power of women.

Directed by Aaron Posner and featuring Regina Aquino, Ami BrabsonEric Hissom, Cody Nickell, Kate Eastwood Norris, Todd Scofield, and Brian Mani as Falstaff.
