Shakespeare Electronic Conference, Vol. 7, No. 0369. Monday, 13 May 1996.
Date: Monday, 13 May 1996 11:24:56 -0400 (EDT)
Subject: Judith Shakespeare Company
Having only recently joined the discussion group, I hope the following is not
considered inappropriate. This past weekend we saw the Judith Shakespeare
production of _Macbeth_. If you are in the NYC area and would like a treat, I
recommend going. This fledgling company, under the direction of Joanne Zipay
is off to an auspicious start. The production is solidly based in the text, is
wonderfully articulate, highly energized, and very creative. Even where you
might quarrel with it, the quarrels are worth having. Though it loses some of
its drive after a brilliant opening, by Act III it has all its power back. I
won't give away any of its imaginative choices, but get there in time to read
the program. You will enjoy it too.
But hurry; it's running only through May 19. Tickets at 212-592-1885.
