Subject:        "Midsummer" Film

The "Titus" postings reminded me that my husband's cousin, who is
Michelle Pfeiffer's assistant, accompanied her employer to Italy last
month for filming on a production of "Midsummer Night's Dream." Pfeiffer
is apparently to play Titania.  I'll attempt to get more information,
but does anyone else on the list know of this production?

If Titus-Mania is on the way with a new movie, games, dolls (or parts
thereof) lunchboxes (not a nice thought) and such, maybe it's time to
revive the Titus Andronicus Double Dactyl Fete. The best could be read
as a prelude to Terence Hawkes's Titus Luncheon. My favorite, coined by
Louisa Newlin-then (still?) of the Folger Shakespeare Library (at the
instigation of Russ McDonald, I believe)-- has lodged, evidently
forever, in my memory.

Higgledy Piggledy
Titus Andronicus
Making a dish
For Tamora the Queen
Anthropophagically
Speaking a triumph
A four-star addition
To nouvelle cuisine.

Anyone know others?

Cheers (and bon apetite),
Skip Nicholson
