The collection Shakespeare and Race, ed. Alexander and Wells, (Cambridge
UP, 2000) may be of interest to those interested in the topic of
colorblind casting.

Pat Dolan, in a message that contains a lot which I admire, suggests
that

I suppose this brings up the question of translation, and hope I'm not
going too far off-topic.  Does anyone know of a production of Richard
III in Anglo-Norman?  I know that H5 was a bit of a hit in Montr

One Night Only!

Friday, June 1st at the Garde Arts Center

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)

It's the Bard at the Garde!

Scared by Shakespeare?  Bored by the Bard?  Think Stratford-upon-Avon is
what happens when you misfold the Connecticut map?  Then this is the
show for you!

Bard on the Brain?  Shakespearean savant?  This show is for you, too!

This fast-paced, funny, physical, full-throttle bash through all of
Shakespeare's works in 97 minutes is the show which has kept audiences
in London, Toronto and New York laughing for the past six years.  No
subject is taboo in this topical show that gets right to the sex,
violence, and killing because, well, that's what Shakespeare wrote
about.  Come and enjoy this night of hysterically irreverent humor in
the beautifully renovated Garde Arts Center, one of the most exquisite
theaters in the state.

The one-night only performance tops off  New London
