Let me get this straight, the Mammoth town council votes to approve the Tourism Business Improvement District (TBID) which is essentially going to tax a tourist when he visits town then use the proceeds from the tax to encourage him to come back and visit again? That’s funny.
Shakespeare is spectacular
Hey, Mammoth: Don’t miss “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) (revised).” It is laugh-out-loud funny.
As not-frequent-enough visitors to Mammoth Lakes, we often wonder how you all spend your time after hiking, fishing, golfing, swimming, kayaking, running, biking and, for the unlucky, working.
Well, at opening night this week, we found that at least some folks seek culture — at least when it’s high-brow/low-brow, courtesy of the Bard and a terrific troupe of local players!
Hicks may nix sticks pix, but this is one play that gets everyone laughing and clapping (insider tips, though: Kids, grab a front-row seat — trust us — and parents and adults, don’t forget the blankets; it’s chilly out there).
So, Romeos, Juliets, those thinking of getting to a nunnery, those who enjoy theater as you like it — make sure you catch this show. To paraphrase: “In a roadside forest with a sawdust floor, all the world’s a stage.”
Oh, and it’s only a $10 suggested donation, and there’s wine.
If you don’t go, “Thou art villains.”
