In Boise's theater family, Idaho Shakespeare Festival is the overachieving elder sibling. It's the one that everyone brags about during holiday meals, and no matter what anyone else in the family does, they can't manage to step out of ISF's shadow. There may be a bit of resentment and sibling rivalry, but no one can deny the accolades are well deserved. That's why ISF has dominated this category for so long. Mom and Dad just love the way it fills a summer evening, and everyone seems willing to plan their entire summers around whatever ISF wants to do. idahoshakespeare.org.
