Colorado Shakespeare Festival announces 2014 season

Geoffrey Kent's A Midsummer Night's Dream was the highlight of this past summer's Colorado Shakespeare Festival, and now that the festival has just released its schedule for 2014, Kent is already mulling the production he'll direct next year: The Tempest.

"I thought we made some bold choices on Dream," he says. "The cast really grabbed onto the story we were telling and exploded it. The festival was a place where I could make risky choices and it felt like a great summer to make them." See also: Does the Colorado Shakespeare Festival deserve a second act?
