To Blair Kelly III, who wanted to know about Shakespeare productions in the
NY-NJ-Philly area this summer: If Jim Lusardi or June Schlueter don't get to
you first, I'll tell you. The best and most comprehensive listing there is of
performances in what New Yorkers call the "metropolitan area" (true
hegemonists, we New Yorkers), subscribe yourself to SHAKESPEARE BULLETIN. It's
like $10 for a whole year, or maybe it went up to $15 (can't remember). Send it
to either of those two named above at Dept. of English, Lafayette College,
Easton, PA 18042.
 
There are literally dozens of productions every summer, too many to list in an
e-mail reply, and they're all over the area, including, but not exclusively,
the New York Shakespeare Festival (free, in Central Park), and the New Jersey
Shakespeare Festival (not free, at Drew University in Madison, NJ) and lots and
lots of small theaters in and outside of the three cities. Have fun.

        Response to Blair Kelly III on performances of Shakespeare:
 
The New York Shakespeare Festival Delacorte Theater/Central Park offerings this
summer are *Measure for Measure* (with Kevin Kline! what fun!) July 1-25th; and
*All's Well* from August 5-29.  The New Jersey Shakespeare Festival in Madison
is offering, I believe, *Othello*, *Shrew*, and a staged reading of *Venus &
Adonis*; also what promises to be a provocative, disturbing and radical
*Measure for Measure* (directed by Mark Milbauer, whose work I have seen and
can recommend).  Call the NJSF for info. about dates, etc (box office
201-408-5600); you might also ask about their annual colloquium in August.
