Two sources for announcements of of theatrical productions are AMERICAN
THEATRE for professional, touring, and repertory companies (usually with one
or two month lead-time for planning before the dates of performance), with
listings by state.  (I think there is a longer-term listing in one of the
monthly issues.)  SHAKESPEARE BULLETIN has a calendar of Shakespearean
productions.  The latest issue lists an ALL's WELL at Villanova Feb 5-9 and
12-16 (phone 215 645-7474).  Novel Stages in Philadelphia will do R&J
Feb 28-Mar 22 at Stage III of Temple U. (phone 215 963 0345).  In Baltimore
a PERICLES runs from Feb 14-Apr 5 at the Head Theatre (301 332 0033).
You might ring up The Acting Company which is on tour with MND until Mar 8
(call 212 564 3510).  Maybe they're flitting your way . . . Their last few
productions have been wonderful.
                                                    Good hunting.

Dear all,
 
I recall that a while ago someone asked whether anyone here knew about
productions of "The Tempest" that involved more than one actor as Ariel.
Sorry I didn't get on this sooner, but work at the beginning of term was
getting out of hand.
 
        In the 1990-1991 season, Dalhousie Theatre Productions (I think
that's what they're called) made such a production, with two actresses.
I was unable to attend, but the production was the subject of a round
discussion in one of my classes, English 3214R (Shakespeare).  Apparently,
the decision was at first a political, rather than strictly artistic, one,
but it met with great approval.
 
        The address of the Theatre Department is below, should anyone want
more information than I can give:
 
        Dalhousie Theatre Department
        Dalhousie Arts Centre
        Dalhousie University
        Halifax, N.S.
        B3H 4H6 (Probably)
        CANADA
 
I hope this helps.
 
	Sincerely,
        Sean Lawrence (
