It's refreshing to hear of live-theater frustrations about the
conveyance of difficult or complex meaning. This kind of problem (which
Harry Berger also writes about in Imaginary Audition) has always seemed
to me to deserve more attention than it gets (at least on this list)
from those involved in producing Shakespeare.
Is there any particular point, however, to the gratuitous whiff of
contempt? (No disrespect to Tom Bishop, of course.)
