East Coast - West Coast squabbles?  Unless it's Great Yarmouth and
Aberystwyth, I aint interested.  Could those of you out west (I mean the
whole of the American continent) please conduct your tribal wars in the
privacy of an off-list punch-up?

I was speaking more to the perverse political reworking of the play than
the quality of its performance (which I could not judge since I didn't
see it).  Yes, there is plenty of that to go around here too, but I
think that there is more of a market for more-or-less unadulterated
Shakespeare in New York than in places whose claim to fame is their
radical chic.

As for Denzel's Washington's Brutus, you won't get an argument from me.
  The whole production is abominable, starting with miscast actors who
neither understood the play nor enunciated the lines in a comprehensible
fashion.
