Smart Bets: Robin Hood

"Sweeping adventure and diabolical villainy collide in this fast-paced swashbuckler," says Parkway Playhouse of its latest production, Robin Hood: The Legend of Sherwood. The new take on the famous archer-turned-outlaw tale is written by Jeff Douglas Messer (with Robert Akers), who also directs (with Andrew Gall) the production. Asheville Lyric Opera veteran Dominic Aquilino stars as Robinhood; the play is set in Medieval England where the Merry Men have banded together in Sherwood Forest to make a stand against the tyrannical Sheriff of Nottingham. Expect plenty of sword play. Performances run Friday, Aug. 12 through Saturday, Aug. 20. Shows at 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and 5 p.m. on Sunday. $10-$20.
