The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 12.1885 Friday, 27 July 2001
Date: Thursday, 26 Jul 2001 12:18:41 -0500
Subject: Ashland T&C
Herewith a copy of what Michael Barnes, (Austin) American-Statesman Arts
Critic said of the *Troilus and Cressida* in his full-page account of
the season at Ashland, titled "Shakespeare in the Pacific Northwest:
Lessons from Oregon: Think Big, Act Small."
"Among Shakespeare's most difficult plays to stage, this damp love story
set against the backdrop of the Trojan War turned loud, violent and
screechy. Rambunctious Kevin Kenerly (Troilus) has a promising career
ahead of him, and director Kenneth Albers, standing in as Pandarus, gave
among the most subtle and mature performances of the week." (Austin
American-Statesman, July 26, 2001, XLent section, p. 27).
