>I've always seen Johnny Weissmuller as King Lear.

On my walk around the reflecting pool in Eden Park today, I decided that I want
to see John Goodman as King Lear.  I think Goodman would be able to show us the
pathetic comedy of this play.

Weissmuller would certainly have been good as Lear on the heath with "Boy" as
the Fool. Would "Jane" be Cordelia?

Yours, Bill Godshalk

But Chris:  That's the reason.  I thought about Touchstone first, but it was
too obvious -- and too removed from the central action.  I'd like to see Woody
cast against type, but in a role where he still tries to run everyone else's
lives, while screwing his own up -- as usual.
