Dear Chris Gordon,
 
Please post the reviews of the Keanu Reeves' *Hamlet* as well as your own
impressions.  There's a doctoral thesis out there for somebody on the
production and reception of film-and-television star-powered Shakespeare. If
Reeves' experience with Hamlet is anything like Richard Chamberlain's with the
same role in the early '70's, there will be some who condemn both his
performance and his hubris out of hand because of the kinds of films with which
he made his reputation, and there will be others whose admiration of his
courage will completely color their assesment of his work.  I live too far away
to see Reeves, and I am curious not only about what he will do, but about how
people will respond.
 
On the subject of *Hamlet*, I am playing Horatio in a production at the San
Diego Rep which runs from 1/28 - 2/19, and I'd like to post an inquiry on
behalf of our Ophelia.  Does anybody know of a book or article which talks
about a clinical diagnosis of Ophelia's madness?  Anybody with an answer can
post to the list or to me personally.
 
Thanks for the help,
Matt Henerson

For Chris Gordon--
 
There's at least one soul out here who would like to see the reviews of Keanu
Reeves's performance in *Hamlet.*  And I'd like to hear your own review as
well.  Send them along!
 
                        Thanks,
                                Dave Collins
