Shakespeare on the Common (otherwise known as “commshakes,” otherwise known as “kinda disappointing if you were jonesin’ for a nice chocolate malt”) returns for another summer run at the Boston Common Parkman Bandstand. This year your local thespians present a Bardic b-side with Coriolanus, the tragedy of a Roman general and war hero undone by his contempt for the common citizen. If that sounds like an purposefully topical production for this post-Occupy election year…well, it is. More so if you know about the deleted act where Agrippa tries to sneak a sink into the Forum.
