I sent an e-mail to the address given, and it was returned
undeliverable, so I shall send my reply to SHAKSPER.  I said:

I would love to see the Duchess of Malfi, so I hope that particular tour
will come near where I am, or that I can arrange to go where it is.
This play was the subject of a thesis I didn't complete, and I go out of
my way to see performances of it.  In fact I have seen but two:
something unmemorable on TV years ago, and a production at the U. of
Victoria BC ca.  1970.  Someday I hope to set up a John Webster web site
and perhaps a Richard Brinsley Sheridan one also, neither of these
playwrights being honored by their own site-at least the last time I
looked.

How about calling that tour "Mine Eyes Dazzle"?

Subject:        Shenandoah Express at the Great Globe of the Southwest

I saw two performances of Shakespeare over the weekend-unusual for
me-but I must compliment the Shenandoah Express for the fine job they
did on Much Ado and Richard II.  I liked the modern costuming of Much
Ado even better than the traditional performance I saw last year and
thought Richard II was wonderful.

I have never seen that play perfumed before and thought that the actors
were outstanding.  (We can even claim one from Odessa, Texas).  I
understand that a mirror image (?) is being performed by the RSC in
England-is it at the Globe there?  Ours was, of course, traditional, and
I understand from a review that the true English one was not.  Is there
meaning in "them thar bones" that an MLA session on geography could draw
out? Or a picture being repainted? Or an old master being retouched?

Too West Texas to be visually oriented--
