Croton-Harmon’s Shakespeare group, Legitimate Edgar, presents Cymbeline, the bard’s farce, this weekend, complete with a chain-saw duel.

In the paper — and here — on Sunday, I’ll take a look at a program at Tarrytown’s Washington Irving School that offers Shakespeare training to fourth-, fifth- and sixth-graders, free of charge. It’s a community effort, run by the Family YMCA of Tarrytown. Next Monday and Tuesday, they’ll be presenting “The Comedy of Errors” in four performances.
Soon, it’ll be time to catch up with the amazing Dee O’Brien and her talented Semi-Royal Shakespeare Company in Mamaroneck. They’re doing two shows in repertory: I’m most interested in their take on “The Scottish Play.” More on that, later.
