Imagining that Mistress Ford and Mistress Page have each fallen for him, the fat knight Sir John Falstaff decides to seduce them both, as much for their husbands’ money as for their personal charms.

    A World of Silliness, but No Winking This Time

    Ben Brantley

    October 31, 2010: Even on a chilly autumn night in a subterranean theater, the Shakespeare’s Globe production of “The Merry Wives of Windsor” breathes the air of springtime. This sparkling show, which runs through Sunday at the Michael Schimmel Center for the Arts at Pace University, brims with a joy in pranks and japes and silly jokes that suggests the devilish feeling that possesses people on the first bright, balmy day after a long winter.

    The Merry Wives of Windsor

    Scott Brown

    October 31, 2010: Loving theater is, without a doubt, an unhealthy relationship. Half the time you’re expecting too much of it; the other half, you’re making excuses for its shortcomings. But every once in awhile, a show comes along to remind you what theater actually is, in its purest form, and why it’s still worth switching off all electronic devices and squeezing into seats seemingly designed for hobbit yogis, all just to watch actors performing live on stage. This week (and this week only), the spectacular troupe from Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre is presenting just such a show, their delighted and delightful version of The Merry Wives of Windsor—which I highly prescribe as a kind of juice cleanse for the theatrically besotted, overdosed, and/or toxified.

    The Merry Wives of Windsor

    David Finkle

    October 31, 2010: A strong case can be made for William Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor -- now being presented at Pace University's Michael Schimmel Center for the Arts in a thoroughly irresistible Shakespeare's Globe production -- being the first sitcom.
