Shakespeare’s plays were first presented 400 years ago in open-air theaters such London’s Globe. Maybe that’s why they work so well in the great outdoors, as evidenced by Cincinnati Shakespeare Company’s engaging Shakespeare in the Park performances in parks all over Greater Cincinnati during August.
