I'm surprised Mike Kasten thought I was saying I was 'burnt out' with
Shakespeare:  all I meant by my original message was that physical
fitness & stamina are pre-requisites for an audience at some of the
current productions.  Anyone who has experience of the Globe seating
will know what I mean, not to mention standing in the pit in a downpour
for three and a half hours.    As I get older, I find that Shakespeare
becomes more and more rewarding, and I can't imagine ever being too
jaded to go to any more productions.
