I'm having a tough time trying to find out what the RSC's summer season is.
Does anyone know what they will be doing from mid-June to September 1st? I will
be in England then and was wondering what Shakespeare I could catch.
 
On a related note, does anyone know of any Shakespeare being produced at the
Edinburgh Festival and what the dates are? I would be much obliged. If y'all
don't think this is interesting enough to go out to everyone, could you send it
to me at this address on internet: IN%"

My family and I will be visiting the D.C. area from July 17 to 24 or so. I
haven't been to Washington since the '67 march on the Pentagon, which I suppose
dates me. I would be grateful to learn of attractions Shakespearean or
theatrical in D.C. and environs at that time.  Anything running at the Folger
or other theatres? We are up on all the usual D.C. attractions, but a few
theatrical or related tips would be received with gratitude and joy. Please
reply directly to me:

How now.  I have to perform Malvolio's soliloquy III.4 ("O ho.  Do you come
near me now? etc...) for a class in a week or so.  I was wondering if any of
y'all out there in 'Shakespeare's electronic globe theatre' might have any
suggestions on how I should do it.
 
It strikes me as if he almost has a split personality:  at once, he is
puritanical and all of the luggage that goes with being a Puritan; he is also
human and he must contend with all of his human want for Olivia despite the
restrictions put upon him by puritanism and by his lower office.
 
Am I anywhere near the bullseye on this, or am I going to perform like a
schmuck?  I hate to drag the puritan schtick into this again, but I realize
that it is somewhat inescapable.
 
By the way, I think it would be cool to do a contemporary production of Twelfth
Night in which Malvolio wears a yellow leisure suit instead of yellow stockings
and a cheesy ascot to replace the cross garters.  If this has been done I would
love to hear about it.
