Sixth World Shakespeare Congress: Theatrical Performances

The _Los Angeles Times_ "Theater Notes" of March 3 reported on the Sixth World
Shakespeare Congress Performing Arts Festival at the Los Angeles Theater
Center.  Don Shirley's article stated that "A Midsummer Night's Dream" will be
set on a Navajo reservation.  A Southern California naval base will be the
setting for "Twelfth Night". "Measure for Measure" will be set in Newt
Gingrich's Washington.

Additional performances listed in the Congress Social Programme include "Venus
and Adonis" performed by Ben Stewart. I had the pleasure of seeing his
excellent one-man dramatization of V&A at Shakespeare Orange County last
summer, and I highly recommend it. At that time, his performance of the entire
work took almost two hours. In the World Congress program, his performance is
scheduled for only one hour. I look forward to seeing his enactment of the poem
again, even if cuts have been necessary.
