In addition to the previous postings on Summer Shakespeare productions, I might
mention that Buffalo has its own "Shakespeare in Delaware Park" each Summer,
which is now in its (I believe) 18th season. This weekend *Macbeth* is closing
and *Taming of the Shrew* opens in two weeks. I have seen many of the
productions and, while Saul Elkin tends to "update" a bit beyond my tastes,
they are generally quite good. It is also commendable that theyemploy a
combination of professional and university performers.
 
Cheers, Matt Smith

I don't know about the Montreal production, but there was a brief run of
*Twelfth Night* here in Halifax, at the Cambridge battery of Point Pleasant
Park.  Malvolio wore yellow lycra cycling pants, with those strap-like things
that people wear to keep their pants cuffs from getting dirty when cycling.
 
In any case, he was certainly the high-point of the production.
 
Cheers,
        Sean Lawrence.
