Subject:        Speaking of Shakespeare with F. Murray Abraham

Speaking of Shakespeare - And Maybe Some Salieri - With F. Murray
Abraham

                            Monday, April 1, at 8:00 p.m.
                            The National Arts Club
                            15 Gramercy Park South
                            New York City

F. Murray Abraham is best known, of course, for his brilliant portrayal
of the envious Salieri in Milos Forman's classic 1984 film "Amadeus."
For this role he earned both an Academy Award and a Golden Globe trophy.
He's also appeared in dozens of other films, among them "The Name of the
Rose" (1986), "Last Action Hero" (1993), and "Finding Forrester" (2000).

What Mr. Abraham's admirers may be less familiar with are the stage
protagonists he's depicted, among them Bottom, Creon, Cyrano, Iago,
Lear, Macbeth, Malvolio, and Uncle Vanya. He'll talk about these and
other figures during a dialogue that explores some of the qualities Mike
Nichols was looking for when he cast Abraham in a celebrated 1988
revival of "Waiting for Godot" that also starred Steve Martin and Robin
Williams.

Admission to this gathering, which will be followed by a light dessert
reception, is $25. To reserve space(s) and arrange for payment by credit
