Poor old Charlie Weinstein! We've put him in a position where he feels
positively forced (kicking and screaming with forced reluctance like a
newly elected pope) to quote his own good reviews.

"My Polonius," he crows, "was praised as a tedious, garrulous
fussbudget!"

Of course it was, Charlie boy. Your director obviously knows the value
of typecasting, the saving grace of many a third rate actor. And
presumably he thought you'd find Bottom's cocksure arrogance easily
within your reach. What was it you couldn't convey, I wonder?  Bottom's
essential humanity, perhaps?

Next time, Charlie, you should look at Egeus. You know - the one who
wants his daughter put to death because she disagrees with him. Should
be right up your street.

Stephen.
