Leave it to Charles to judge a production before they even begin
rehearsals. Open your mind Charles. It's a terrible thing to waste.

Timon of Athens

I didn't reply to Bob's first post, assuming that a flood of passionate
refutations would render mine superfluous.  But I'm astonished at the
failure to defend the poetry in <Timon>, something explicitly attacked
by Bob: with Johnson I would have to say, 'if this be not poetry, where
is poetry to be found?'  If I didn't know better I would assume that Bob
equated poetry with the lyricism of "A Midsummer Night's Dream."

Elvis Costello's Il Sogno

Elvis Costello has never been shy about collaborating, throwing his lot
in with folks as diverse as Paul McCartney, Burt Bacharach and the
Brodsky Quartet. The onetime angry young man really swings for the
fences, however, on his latest "collaboration" -- transliterating
Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" as a symphonic piece

Ballet after Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream"

# Prepare yourselves for Elvis Costello's next musical adventure:
Following the success of his intimate collection of love songs North
(released by Deutsche Grammophon), which remained at the top of
Billboard Traditional Jazz charts for several weeks in 2003, Deutsche
Grammophon is now following up with Elvis Costello's first full-scale
orchestral work.

# Il Sogno is compelling ballet music, successfully blending elements of
impressionistic classical style

Family Affair, Notorious and Historic
By BEN BRANTLEY

The dialogue - between master and apprentice, genius and imitator - is
as old as art itself. But for a few exciting moments this eternal
conversation feels brand new in "The Booth Variations," the seriously
ambitious mixed-media work that opened last night at the 59E59 theater
complex.

The participants in this exchange are two 19th-century Shakespearean
actors, Junius Booth and his son Edwin, and they are both portrayed by
the same man, Todd Cerveris. There is Mr. Cerveris in the flesh as the
young Edwin, watching his father's performance as Lear from the wings.
And then there is the phantom version of Mr. Cerveris as Booth p
