The Shenandoah Shakespeare Express will be at the Folger Theatre on March 20.
I know because I am in a workshop that weekend. This is a great group, and
if you can see them, you're in for a treat. Call them at 1-800-SAY-PUCK to
get information about their DC plans. Steven Booth wrote a wonderful review of
their work in a recent SQ. 1/2 price tickets are usually pretty easy to
get at Landsburgh and at Arena. Call and ask if you should arrive early.
They are both good at telling you your chances. I also know a great B&B if
you need a fairly inexpensive place to stay. Let me know. Have fun in DC--a
great place, but be careful.

[Editor's Note: I too would encourage you to see The Shenandoah Shakespeare
Express and to read Stephen Booth's piece in SQ (43: 479-483). Let me quote
the second paragraph for you: "I first saw The Shenandoah Shakespeare Express
perform in Washington, D.C., in July of 1991. I haven't thought the same
since about Shakespeare or the theater."
Let me also put in a plug for The Shakespeare Theatre's *Comedy of Errors*. In
particular, I thought that Philip Goodwin did a stunning, an unforgetable job
as the Antipholi and the set -- oh the set . . . -hmc]
