For the more lighthearted, the festival brings us Cymbeline, a tender bit of joy that shows us all how powerful a woman in love can be. Imogen is one of literatures most loyal lovers. When shes parted from her husband, she suffers as no woman should. But this is a love story, and Shakespeare makes sure that love is not in vain. Cymbeline is a perfect play for lovers curled up under the nighttime sky on the hill at Miller Outdoor Theatre. 8:30 p.m. Julius Caesar is performed August 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9. Cymbeline is performed August 2, 6, 8 and 10. One Concert Drive, Hermann Park. For information, call 281-373-3386 or visit www.houstonfestivalscompany.com. Free.
