I was wondering if anyone had heard any of the details in regards to the
reopening of the American Festival Theatre in Stratford, CT.  As far as I know,
a Mr. Louis Burke is in charge and plans to have a season this soummer outdoors
while the theatre is being renovated.  James Earl Jones expressed interest in
performing in a production of Twelfth Night (as Malvolio?)

If anyone know of how to get in touch with any of the people involved with this
renovation or if they are in the process of hiring people, please let me know.

Thanks,

I researching the life and brief public reading career of John Porter.  He read
from the Great Bible at St. Paul's in London during the early 1540's. His
murder is described in Fox's Book of Martyrs.  Where can I gather solid
biographical information, accounts of his reported murder, and first-hand
accounts of his scripture reading?
