Shakespeare Electronic Conference, Vol. 5, No. 0042. Tuesday, 18 January 1994.

Subject: Good Night Desdemona, Good Morning Juliet
I highly recommend to all SHAKSPEReans in the Washington, DC area the
play *Good Night, Desdemona, Good Morning Juliet* performed by the
Woolly Mammoth Theater Company until 13 February.
This play, by Ann-Marie MacDonald, is hilariously funny as well as
being a feast for lovers of the language of the Bard. The acting by
the cast of five is just excellent. Naturally the play concerns
Shakespeare's works of Othello and Romeo and Juliet, but to say much
more will give too much away. Suffice it to say that I came away
yesterday with new insights into the characters of Desdemona and
Juliet. I hope to find time in my busy schedule to see the performance
again, (something I rarely do) --- it is that good.
Wolly Mammoth's box office is 202-393-3939.
