Written on CBT Refreshes Shakespeare's Classic Comedy 'The Merry Wives of Windsor':

Merry Wives of Windsor can be even more enjoyable when we remember the legend that Shakespeare wrote it after Queen Elizabeth asked him to write a play about Falstaff in love. And what if Falstaff was a subliminal spoof of her father, King Henry VIII? He was notoriously rotund in old age-- like Falstaff. And he was a philanderer-- like Falstaff.
