Steve Urkowitz wrote that the role of Egeus seems to be one of those
played by Shakespeare.
In the Peter Hall production of "MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM" currently
playing in Los Angeles, the role of Egeus is played by an actor who is
made up to look like William Shakespeare.
(I don't recommend the production, The role of Oberon is played by an
actor who seems to be channeling Cyril Ritchard as Captain Hook.)
