Comment:        Re: SHK 14.073 Re: Shakespeare's Accessibility

Many thanks to Karyn White for the brief history of the Globe in Japan,
thereby reminding enthusiasts who "build" theatres or renovate them that
it's not so easy, even in Tokyo. We've just saved from demolition a
stage in an old public school in a tiny village in Appalachian Ohio and
have big plans; we need a memento mori now and then to keep our heads
level.

And John W. Kennedy said:

Then we must ask how the other theatres in Japan are surviving, i.e.,
what led the Globe Tokyo to a sale while most other theatres are still
in business (though they too may be in the red). (A Shakespearean's)
life is never easy...

Best wishes,
