Charles --

You are possibly the funniest person I know.  Just like Rodney
Dangerfield, you get no respect, no respect at all, and all you're
trying to do is to get some stuffy lit. crits royally pissed enough to
keep your name and ideas in the forefront of their thoughts.  Whatta
guy!!  Whatta sense of humor!!

Well, I agree with you; the whole film industry -- at least the
Shakespearean end of it -- ought to be dismantled.  I'm all for several
creative versions of *Porkys* instead -- maybe *Porkys* V, VI,.. XIX,
etc.  That way, when comes the Darkness, at least we adolescents will
all go out with a smile on our faces and a big ... .

Thanks for the memories,
John V. Knapp

Actually there are still quite a number of open air stages in my area:
OSF, Tahoe, Carmel, and several small wineries.  Quality varies but I
saw quite a nice Werry Wives in a park a few miles from my house.

"This leaves us with television the only medium that can pull it off in
our present time."

I contend that audio tape is a fine way to experience Shakespeare,
especially the Arkangel series.  When you say "Most of the lines are
blank verse poetry - words that stimulate the mind - imagery that sets
synapses clicking and popping - lines that make the soul soar" this
drives home the fact that audio can deliver the poetry without any
visual distraction.

When there is nothing but audio to work with then the producer,
director, and actors must concentrate on delivering a product that will
click and pop those synapses.

Sam -- have you listened to an Arkangel tape?

Yes it is.
