Subject:        First Folio Function

I had an audition last night for Alls Well that Ends Well and we read
from the First Folio. It threw me off quite a bit due to the archaic
word spellings.

What is the function of using the First Folio when preparing a
production?  I know Chicago Shakespeare actors use it when beginning to
research their roles.  The actors go back to the First Folio.  I think
they even teach it as part of one of their classes.

Thanks,
Mark Alexander
