I took class from Fran when studying at The Shakespeare Theatre.  She's
a wonderful actress, and a very lovely person.  DC has lost a gem!

The question above is from Jimmy Jung.

There is indeed Shakespeare in Texas.  Won't bore you with a long list,
but will just say that the two outdoor summer productions of
Shakespeare  by the Shakespeare Society of Dallas have been worth the
400 mile round trip from Austin   for many years now.  Company is a
blend of Equity and other actors.  Directors do most things well
indeed.  Free; bring a blanket and a picnic.

Cheers (pun intended),
John (and Sarah) Velz

In answer to the question from Jimmy Jung, "Is there Shakespeare in
Texas?" I can think of several festivals off the top of my head
including Dallas Shakespeare, Houston Shakespeare (twenty-five years old
this year?), Austin Shakespeare, Kilgore Shakespeare, and Shakespeare at
Winedale. There is also the replica of the Globe in Odessa, Texas where
theatre is performed as well.

Sincerely,
Bill Gelber
