I just saw a production of Two Noble Kinsmen at Cuyahoga Community
College here in the Cleveland area.  It wasn't silly and sentimental at
all, but kindly satirical, funny, and most delightful.  Quite Chaucerian
in fact.  I came away thinking that the play should be studied and
produced more often.

I was also struck by its similarities to Two Gentlemen of Verona.  I had
expected the production to be more as Ed described-pre Corneille or
Racine-and was pleasantly surprised that it did not turn out that way at
all.

Drew,

You are right, of course, and the omission does beg explanation.  You
simply provided me with the opportunity to express my perverse desire to
make public my reaction to the show.  Somebody-persuade me that my
reaction was invalid.  The above quotation might have helped had I not
remembered the story context for the thought.

Perversely,
Ed
