In support of Norm Holland's response to the Hermione/bear
transformation, I offer the quip rewriting Shax's famous stage
direction, which I overheard from my (yes VERY uncomfortable) seat:
"Exit Antigonus, chased by HER MOTHER???"  Seemed to sum up the
wrongheaded direction of all of WINTER'S TALE, though I do agree that
the actor playing Autolycus (Nicholas Le Prevost) gave an inspiring and
thought-provoking performance.

Just a heartfelt thanks to Bill Godshalk, Jimmy Jung, and everyone who's
posted about the productions at the New Globe.  For those of us who can
only travel in our imaginations, these reports are a godsend. I'll
reciprocate later this season when the Guthrie stages _Much Ado_ and
Theatre de la Jeune Lune (my favorite local theater company, but one
that has only rarely does Shakespeare) produces _Twelfth Night_.

so she can spend her days traveling the world to see Shakespeare
productions
