Written and first performed in 1599, The Shoemaker's Holiday was the most popular non-Shakespearean comedy of its day-a hearty brew of character and overflowing good humor, occasionally ribald, about the gentle craft of shoemaking. Bernard Sahlins's new adaptation streamlines the dialogue for contemporary audiences and makes it extremely playable.
The adaptations made by Sahlins are invisible to anyone who is not intimately familiar with the text. * Library Journal *
