We had invited people to bring 5 minute stories showing how the bard's words can ring true in our lives ...or our imagined lives. And afterwards they could see the Commonwealth Shakespeare's free performance of "All's Well That Ends Well" on the Common. We played hide and seek with the rain and ended up hiding from rain that fell the next day. But I am convinced that Karen was right: If we had gone outside? The rain would have dumped on us right then.

Michael has an entire evenings worth of material on Shakespeare and will host an open mic event called Free Will at the Burren in Somerville, on November 5th from 4-7PM. Last year it was an SRO event, so plan to get there early for a good seat.
Here is an audio file of one of Michael's offerings at the mouthoff that I captured on my cell phone. Sorry for the sound quality but I think the story quality creates a balance and a clip worth listening to.
