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,
