WINONA — They made merry in Winona last Friday when the 2014 Great River Shakespeare Festival opened with a delightful production of "The Merry Wives of Windsor."

Although generally not considered among the first, or even second, order of Shakespeare's works, "The Merry Wives of Windsor" offers plenty of opportunity for light-hearted entertainment. And the folks at the Great River Festival don't have to be begged to have some fun now and then. The play, directed by Paul Barnes, founder of the festival, is presented as a slice of vaudeville-style showmanship, with songs, asides to the audience and broad humor.
