There was a New York production of *Goodnight Desdemona..." off Broadway
starring Cherry Jones in 1992 (I think.)  And the San Diego Repertory Theater
is about to go into rehersal for a production which opens in late April.

Norman,
 
A production of GDGJ was performed by the Circuit Playhouse in Memphis,
Tennessee, in either 1992 or 1993.  It was the best play I've seen since.  The
action was non-stop, such so that--being an inveterate over-analyzer--I had a
hard time keeping up with the many references.  I was also completely charmed
by the actress playing Constance Ledbelly, one Anna Marie Caskey.  If you like,
I could possibly send particulars such as director, etc.

There was a great production of Goodnight/Good morning at UVA last Fall. What a
fun show!  Betsy Tucker in their Theatre Department directed.
 
Have a good weekend

In response to Norman Myers inquiry about US productions of GOODNIGHT
DESDEMONA (GOOD MORNING JULIET), the Mendocino Theatre Company under the
artistic direction of Meg Patterson produced it not too long ago.  You can read
about them in this month's American Theatre Magazine in an article entitled "A
Stake in Utopia: Theatre's back-to-the-land movement comes of age in Northern
California."
 
Also, I seem tro recall a production of it in Atlanta when I lived there
sometime in 1992 or 1993.  You might contact the Atlanta Theatre Coalition --
should be in the phonebook -- to see if they can help you.

Shakespeareans might be interested in knowing about other productions in the US
of Anne-Marie MacDonald's very good feminist view of R&J and Othello, Good
Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet).  I know of five US productions.
Off-Broadway saw Cherry Jones play the lead in 1992.  My institution, Franklin
College, staged the play in January 1993.  Purdue University staged the play in
the spring of 1993.  The Mississippi University for Women staged the play in
thefall of 1994, and Sinclair Community College in Dayton, OH, staged it in
Dec. 1994.  Shakespeareans might be very interested in how the play creates new
versions of R&J and Othello when: 1) Tybalt learns that Romeo has married his
cousin, which halts his attack on Romeo;  and 2) Othello learns that Iago has
the hanky.

There was a well-received production of *Goodnight Desdemona, Good Morning
Juliet* in Washington, DC, last season.  I just cannot remember if it was at
the Source, Roundhouse, or Olney Theatre.
