All that glisters is not gold

The line from The Merchant of Venice is certainly true. However the production of The Merchant of Venice mounted in Cedar City was pure gold. Shakespeare's text certainly provides plenty of material to work with. With that base, however, the Utah Shakespearean Festival mounted an even more amazing, rich version of the play. Unfortunately this weekend was the last of the fall season. Now it is time to await the coming of the 2007 summer season.
