To Interested SHAKSPERians:
 
I have just heard on the CBC (my only contact with the outside world apart from
discussion groups!) that a Montreal group is performing *Macbeth* and *Twelfth
Night* as part of their *Shakespeare in the Park* series.  The take on *TN* is
interesting--it is set in a club on the Florida coast.  There was a discussion
some months back about what Malvolio might wear instead of yellow cross-garters
in a modern- dress production, and that came to mind as I was hearing about
this production.  If anyone happens to find themselves in Montreal (and there
are worse places to be in July, believe me!), and happens to see this
production (I've forgotten the name of the troupe--sorry!), I'd love to hear
about staging, costuming, &c.  It's unlikely this production will tour
Saskatchewan.
 
Keeping my ear to the radio,
Noel Chevalier

If you can, come on into Manhattan to see the current production of Merry Wives
in Central Park.  Great fun, tough and delicate, brilliantly designed and used
set, costumes, music, stage action.  But best of all, the strongest American
playing of Shakespeare I've seen in a while.  The reviews for opening night, I
hear, were not good (I haven't seen them myself), and I spoke with a neighbor
who had been there: she agreed.  Anyway, when I saw it Tuesday night the packed
theatre laughed and rolled and giddied with silliness and kind affection for
everyone onstage.
 
There's a new ticket policy: still free.  They distribute tickets at the
Delacort Theatre in Central Park starting early in the afternoon (I'm not sure
just when--Help! someone!!) & at the Public Theater on Lafayette Street at the
same time. No more interminable wait in the sun.
 
    Enjoy! (Also, good food for sale at the playhouse.)
                As ever,
                        Steve Urkowitz, City College of New York
