Dear Matt and Frank,

Thanks. I guess I must have seen it at the Kennedy Center. Now, I need
to figure out how the production was staged in black and white to match
my memory of the last scene. I clearly remember the Brook Dream at the
Kennedy Center from around the same period; don't know why I thought I
saw this one on television. Oh, well, sometimes I cannot tell if I am a
Chinese philosopher or a butterfly either.

Hardy
