Bad Dates

Shakespeare & Company, Lenox, MA
through September 12, 2010

This is an easy review. Simply go back in time, specifically to January, 2009 and November, 2008 to read the preview and review of "Bad Dates" on this website. The play was so much fun then, that it was brought back for a seven-week run in 2010. Only this time, it's funnier. Usually, repeat performances are not as good. However, solo star Elizabeth Aspenlieder had the audience, albeit mostly women, in a personal conversation. The big subject was shoes, somewhat like the "Sex in the City's" second most often topic of discussion.
