“The Winter’s Tale” has everything a Shakespearean romance should have, including scandals, torture, revenge, chases, mistaken identity, escapes, true love and miracles. The play, from the back catalogue of Shakespeare’s canon, is a meditation on romance, true love and the power of theater to awaken the audience’s faith in the miracle of renewal.
