Too bad it’s not a PANDA bear.

It’s a wonderful part in a horrible play. Shakespeare’s worst play. I think he needed a commission and wrote it for some wealthy lord with a daughter named Perdita. He got halfway through then said, “God I hate this play. I think I’ll add a bear.”

“Shakespeare’s worst play”
Cf. e.g., Pericles, Timon of Athens, Titus Andronicus

I have to disagree about Pericles. When I first read it, I didn’t get it. But then I worked on Mary Zimmerman’s production at The Shakespeare Theater Co. in D.C. It remains one of the top five shows I have ever had the pleasure of being part of. She approached it like a fairy tale, a beautiful fantasy in which Pericles travels from country to country meeting challenges and having adventures.
I was pleased to see that production is the Wikipedia picture:

Which theatre was this, may I ask? That’s a very interesting bear costume and I’d like to see more of it!

The Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis. But I moved so I don’t work there anymore. I miss it.
