Dear fellow SHAKSPEReans:
 
I'm going to be a participant in Shakespeare & Company's month-long intensive
training program for theater professionals this May-June. Despite the fact that
I haven't done any theater work since high school (except a bit of dramaturgy),
my statement was persuasive enough to the director of training that he called
to talk with me and admitted me on the basis of our conversation. I just
wondered if any of you have participated in this program. It's _very_ intense:
6 days a week, 13 hours a day, and covers multiple aspects of text analysis,
perfomance (voice, movement, stage combat, dance, etc.), the place of theater
in the contemporary world, and on. I'm very excited about going, but would love
to hear from anyone who has worked with this group in a training program like
this or any of their other programs. Post to me directly
(

interest to the rest of the list.
 
Many thanks,

Dear Dr. Cook,
 
I am currently writing my M.A. thesis on "The Devil's Metamorphosis in English
Renaissance Drama". My work is well under way, but I thought that perhaps you
might have some interesting comments or suggestions concerning the topic in
general or a good choice of reading materials. The thesis is, among other
things, concerned with changing attitudes towards the Devil (or rather Satan)
himself; from Satan feared to Satan admired and, eventually, ridiculed. I will
be grateful for any help you can give.
 
Best regards,
Pawel Rutkowski.
