Subject:        Twelfth Night at Yale
I recently saw the Yale Rep's Twelfth Night, set in the 60's with costumes from
"La Dolce Vita."  Feste was a nightclub singer, Maria wore a miniskirt, and
there was a pool on the stage into which, as a matter of dramatic imperative,
nearly everyone and everything eventually plunged.  Indeed, Sebastian made his
first entrance from the pool, though I'm not sure how.  An interesting note:
At the end, when Malvolio promises revenge, everyone breaks into cruel
laughter.  I'm looking for a film of Twelfth Night for my spring term comedy
course.  Any recommendations?  Dave
