The Buffalo News

THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR, a comedy by William Shakespeare about the would-be womanizer Sir John Falstaff, presented by Shakespeare in Delaware Park, directed by Eileen Dugan, opened Thursday night starring Pamela Rose Mangus as "Sir John Falstaff."

Buffalo actor Pamela Rose Mangus Part 2 -a conversation about Shakespeare in Delaware Park's THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR.

THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR, a comedy by William Shakespeare presented by Shakespeare in Delaware Park, opened Thursday, June 22, on a beautiful Buffalo summer evening. Directed by Eileen Dugan, the all-woman production stars Pamela Rose Mangus as "Sir John Falstaff" along with Kate Conigisor, Priscilla Young Anker, Victoria Perez, Charmagne Chi, Julia Register, Caitlin Baeumler Coleman, Darleen Pickering Hummert, Diane DiBernardo, and Josie DiVincenzo. 

The play runs through July 15, Tuesdays through Sundays at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free, but a goodwill offering is solicited at intermission by the actors. All performances are on "Shakespeare Hill" near the Rose Garden and Marcy Casino in Delaware Park. Bring a blanket or lawn chair and perhaps a jacket as performances continue past sundown. Suitable for all ages. For more information, call 856-4533 or visit www.shakespeareindelawarepark.org.

Even though "semi-retired," Peter Hall continues to wear many hats. He is the Sunday afternoon host on WBFO’s “sister station,” WNED Classical where he has produced over 1,000 radio interviews with musical artists. If you see him at a theater with a pen in his hand, he’s probably getting ready to co-host “Theater Talk” with Anthony Chase (heard Friday mornings at 6:45 and 8:45 a.m. on WBFO) or to write a review for www.buffalorising.com. He is also a member of the "Artie Awards" committee (think “Tony Awards for Buffalo theaters”).
