I have heard tell of a brilliantly conceived production of *Twelfth Night*,
done about eight or nine years ago by Sharon Ott, Artistic Director of the
Berkeley Repertory Theatre.  It was described to me (by BRT Associate A.D.,
Tony Taccone) as completely re-envisioned without being deconstructed.  The
setting was turn-of-the-century Paris. I understand that the reviews were
outstanding.  The production helped establish Sharon here in the Bay Area.
Sorry I can't give you more details; perhaps someone out there saw it and has
more to say?

I saw a practically flawless production of Twelfth Night this summer
at the Stratford Festival.. I suspect it is still running, so it might
be worth a trip north to catch it.  They placed the play in the Carribean
with all its island mystery.

Regarding performances of TN and what to avoid, one might mention Toby's
pickled herring belch (no pun). Yet I think of theater as being conservative
about its oral traditions, and as a result I believe there are matters of
convention of  presentation as well as of business which one ought to keep and
thus honor.  As ritual, shouldn't theater recreate Garrick (and earlier
performers) each time it re-presents the material in l994?
