Subject: 	Stratford, CT, Shakespeare Theatre

Regarding the Stratford CT Shakespeare theatre (where I saw many 
productions, some of them memorable including the worst R&J I think I've 
ever seen)...

The town of Stratford has selected a NYC developer to revive the 
theatre, passing over a very active and theatre-connected local proposal.

Details available at 
http://www.stratfordfestival.com/news/2006/may/2006_10_05_Town_Selects_NYC_Developer.htm

I won't hold my breath till it's a fait accompli; this is not the first 
time such announcements have been made to fanfares of various volumes.

The key bit of information is this: "The town's contract with KKP to 
redevelop the theater and its surrounding property was approved with 
several conditions including the group stage a Shakespeare summer season 
this year.  "The failure of any one performance clause would result in 
the contract reverting back to the town," said Mayor Miron."

To date I have seen no announcement of a summer season.  I'll keep 
listmembers up to date on any actual performances scheduled.
