Subject: 	Play Recommendation

I am helping the high school drama group choose a play for performance 
this winter.  I would like suggestions of Shakespeare comedies that have 
a maximum number of significant parts, in other words, lots of 
opportunities for stars, and can be performed with little complicated 
scenery.

I've been thinking about LLL, but the end is a downer, perhaps too much 
so for a high school play.  If not leave 'em laughing, then at least 
don't leave them deflated.

Another local school did the Boys from Syracuse a couple years ago, so I 
don't want to do Comedy of Errors.

Suggestions and justifications would be welcome.  Thank you.

Michael B. Luskin
