Hello Mark & Susan.
I can't believe August is almost over, so let's see
it out with a Madison Favorite! Come to the capitol
Square this sat and sun and enjoy great food and music
at The Taste of Madison.

And there's an interesting benefit that has an unusual
combination, right Michael?

And is there some Monkey Business going on this weekend,
Yes MARK there certainly IS!
The Monkey Business Institute, Madison's award-winning
improv comedy troupe, is performing at Glass Nickel
Pizza on Atwood Avenue and they doesn't waste time
with such trivialities as sets, props, scripts or
line memorization, instead creating spur-of-the-moment,
seat-of-the-pants improvisational comedy by mixing
audience suggestions, decades of improv experience
and sheer moxie.
There are two show this Sat One at for all ages and
one at 8pm for the grown-ups.
And there MUST be some theater this weekend as well....
Yes there IS Susan! American Players Theater has
a 1pm Matinee on Sunday of William Shakespeare's 'Much
Ado About Nothing'.
Masquerades reveal as much as they hide in this hilarious
Leonato's house is a happy one, complete with beautiful
daughter Hero and clever niece Beatrice.
But when Leonato's friends return from war, the household
is turned on its ear by the instant attraction between
Hero and Claudio, and the constant bickering and,
clearly, also attraction between Beatrice and Benedick.
But there's a snake in the midst of all this affection,
and Don John plots to destroy everyone's happiness
before some of our couples are even aware that they
are indeed a couple
