Subject: Re: The problem of Hero
A question to all (or any) SHAKESPERians:
I am currently rehearsing the role of Hero for MUCH ADO. I am trying, within
the confines of the romantic ingenue, to find moments or ideas to give Hero
some personality. Does anyone have comments, references, or suggestions?
Also, too, there are a few unresolved questions in my mind. WHY was Hero alone
the night before her wedding? And WHY doesn't she speak up for herself? If she
is too stunned to speak in her own defense, why doesn't Beatrice say something?
I guess that is enough for one posting. I welcome any or all comments.
