Re: Al Magary's posting of the news item about me ("New Stage for
Shakespeare",
April 13). I am very grateful to Al, as always, for bringing news about
the REED project to the SHAKSPER audience.  I would appreciate the
chance to correct one error, and supply one omission, from the news
item, that occurred during the transmission of a ninety-minute interview
into a short news piece.

The error:  What I actually said was that Shakespeare, through the
Stratford Festival of Canada, contributes $125 million annually to the
economy of Stratford and southern Ontario. This is a "ball-park"
estimate that has been presented by the Festival.

The omission:  During the interview I emphasised, repeatedly, that REED
is an international co-operative project involving scholars from many
countries. I also stressed that within REED, the Patrons and
Performances Website project (the immediate subject of the interview and
the article) is an inter-university project involving the University of
Western Ontario and the University of Toronto; my co-investigator is
Professor Sally-Beth MacLean, Executive Editor of REED, and I happily
acknowledge this collaboration.  It was very unfortunate that there was
no reference to her in the article, and I welcome this chance to give
Sally-Beth her due.

This link echo appeared after my sig.  I should say I have no connection
with Toronto or the REED project other than as a fan.

Cheers again!
