My cousin was in a musical version of *Merchant of Venice* as Portia once. This
must have been about 15 (?) years ago, in a showcase version off-Broadway.  I
seem to recall a duet between Portia and Nerissa called "O me, O My, Ah men"
and some other stuff which escapes me.  Actually, it was pretty good, but then
I was a stage-struck teenager and might not have noticed.  Anyone hear of this
thing?

If memory serves me correctly, someone on this list mentioned a wonderfully
heinous sounding version of Hamlet as a musical.  I think I remember that it
plays annually at Rice University, but I could be wrong.
 
I wish I could see it performed some time.
 
Cheerio,
Sean.

Regarding Shakespeare musicals, there was a musical version of _Two Gents_
done in Shakespeare in the Park back in the 70s (I think Raul Julia was in it
and made a big splash with his performance).  I'm not aware of any recordings
of it available, though....

--and we all cherish Anna Russell's approximation of the operatic *Hamletto.*

In case anyone is interested in looking into YOUR OWN THING (1968), it was
printed together with TWELFTH NIGHT by Dell in 1970--and may well have been
reprinted, but I don't know that for a fact.
