Shakespeare preaches patience to Red Sox fans

November 17, 2011

Only in New England can you be sitting in an audience, watching a great presentation of Hamlet by the Gamm Theatre acting company of Pawtucket, when during intermission a man turns around in his seat and asks: “Who’s going to be the next manager of the Red Sox?”
The interrogator was Bobby Fields, a former Pawtucket West student-athlete. He probably won’t recognize the rest of this but Shakespeare might.

“This year we hope to make it a thousand,” says Porreca.
But L&R needs your help — or at least your unwanted appliances — to make it happen.
