Subject:        Judi Dench

Judi Wilkins comments on Judi Dench as a versatile actress.

I saw her play Beatrice in the afternoon and Lady Macbeth the next
night, both at RSC in Stratford.  That was long years ago.  Used to tell
my students that I would follow J.D. barefoot through the snow.  J.W.
and others may get some pleasure from John Lahr's long account of Judi
Dench in the latest *New Yorker*.  Praise for her Iris Murdoch and much,
much more.  A survey, as it were, of high points in a great career.
Plenty of comment on her idiosyncrasies about not learning lines or even
reading plays before she accepts roles.  Have a read!

Yours for versatility,
John
