What’s in a Name? Shakespeare Gets a New Look

The Orlando-UCF Shakespeare Festival is changing its name to “The Orlando Shakespeare Theater, in partnership with UCF.”

That “in partnership with” bit seems a bit of an afterthought the way it’s presented on the web site, so I suspect that it reflects some attempt to make nice with the UCF crowd and will be ignored in practice.

And speaking of web sites, they have a new one of those as well — — which leads me to believe they hope people will start calling them “Orlando Shakes.”

Check out their 2007 – 2008 season. which includes Comedy of Errors, As You Like It, and The Scottish Play by the Bard, as well as Shylock, which “explores The Merchant of Venice through the eyes of its controversial character, Shylock.”
