'Our Class enjoyed using your adaptation of Shakespeare's 'A Comedy of Errors!' It was especially enjoyable for our audiences of over 500 young people. What an accomplishment to be able to say my students have performed and understood one of Shakespeare's comedies! Thank you for the opportunity to present a fun and 'adolescent friendly' version of 'A Comedy of Errors!''
