Subject: 4.0066 Shakespeare is where?
Comment: Re: SHK 4.0066 Shakespeare is where?
Well now, over here in Cleveland we have several Shakespeares and a
Ben Jonson in your time frame. :-)
The Great Lakes Theater Festival will have Claire Bloom doing her one-woman
show of "Shakespeare's women" in late March, and will be presenting Othello
throughout May, beginning, as I recall, on the 6th May. GTLF did "Mother
Courage" last year (*Sniff*).
Details: (216) 241-6000.
Also at the end of March in Cleveland, Case Western Reserve Univ will be
having a fully vamped and ready showing of Jonson/Jones court masque
"Oberon" originally given 1611. This will be complete with period music and
costumes (ever seen the satyrs from Orgel/Strong "Theater of the Stuart
Court"? 8-0 ). The show runs from March 24-27 and co-incides with this
year's Ohio Shakespeare Conference.
Details: (216) 368-2400
I am advised that a bi-racial production of The Tempest will also open at
Cleveland's Karamu House that same weekend. Now that would probably go quite
well with "Oberon" given the "homme sauvage" etc stuff in both.

Wanna make a weekend of it? You can even go to a Mahler program at the
Cleveland orchestra with Vladimir Ashkenazy.
Where did I learn to sound so much like a travel agent?
Anyone else interested out there can just get in touch with me and I'll offer
directions. I'm at (216) 368-2371 or the email address below.
