Sketching A WINTER’S TALE (SCP)

Thursday’s performance of A WINTER’S TALE by Shakespeare in Clark Park took place in the rain venue of Drexel’s Mandell Theater, but that didn’t stop Aaron Krolikowski from whipping out his sketchbook as if doing a little al fresco drawing. His resulting sketches give a feel for the vibrant life of the live performance. Here is a sampling, or check out the full array of drawings at his picture blog, The Sketch Book Reporter [Clark Park, 43rd Street and Chester Avenue] July 29-August 2, 2015; shakespeareincarkpark.org.
