"In a clever, urban twist to Shakespeare in the park, Karamu Theatre artistic director Terrence Spivey has launched "Classics in the Lot," a summer production staged alfresco in the Karamu House Outdoor Amphitheatre at 2355 East 89th St., Cleveland. Audience members are encouraged to bring their own folding chairs" - [Andrea Simakis, Cleveland Plain Dealer, July 2014]
