Merry Wives of Windsor - Photo by Alessandra Nicole

“Why, then the world ’s mine oyster, Which I with sword will open,” says Pistol to Falstaff in Act II of The Merry Wives of Windsor. Those words never rang truer as Delaware Shakespeare does just that in bringing this play to life for their Summer Festival series at Rockwood Park. Originally, published in the early 1600s, The Merry Wives of Windsor is a vehicle for one of Shakespeare’s most infamous characters, Sir John Falstaff. The character of Falstaff, of course, had previously been featured in Henry IV, Part 1 and Part 2. It is said that Queen Elizabeth loved the character so much that she demanded Shakespeare write Falstaff into a comedy and show him in love. Thus, we have this play in which Falstaff, full of bravado and booze, sets out to woo two married women in order to gain access to their husband’s wealth. All the while, three other suitors make their play for a young lass whose heart belongs to only one. And so, as they say, comedy ensues. 

Gayle Dillman - Ladybug Music Festival

Never get in the way of a woman and her passion. In the case of Gayle Dillman, it was her role as a proud stay-at-home mom that created a path for her to co-found Gable Music Ventures and its Ladybug Festival. In 2010, seeking to showcase her talented daughter’s original music, she paired up with now-business-partner Jeremy Hebbel to put on “First Annual Yorklyn Rock Showcase.” One thing led to another and this entrepreneur, who has been quoted in Billboard Magazine, will soon welcome 10,000 guests to the eighth annual Festival, taking place July 18 and 19, 2019.


Green Box is Growing
New Market Wilm

Wilmington Green Box has opened its gates for another summer of cold pressed juices at its Green Space on the 400 block of Market (and now at the Rodney Square Farmers’ Market on Wednesdays). But before the summer ends (fingers crossed, if construction goes well), it will be joined by Green Box Kitchen, a new fast-casual vegan restaurant that will offer takeout with seating for about 10-12 people on the corner of Fourth and Market.  And that’s not even the biggest thing Green Box entrepreneur Jason Aviles has going on this summer…

Women Who Rock: Amy Watson Bish
JulieAnne Cross

While “Bye, Bye, Miss American Pie” might seem like a natural soundtrack to Amy Watson Bish’s furious home-kitchen piemaking sessions (the frequently medal-winning pies don’t stick around for long), our guess is she’s more likely humming along to the Broadway musical, Waitress.
