Subject: 	Shakespeare in Washington, D.C., Festival Begins

Dear SHAKSPEReans,

A note about an event in my hometown area: Saturday, the Shakespeare in 
Washington, D.C., Festival began.

Google News currently has links to 37 newspaper article from across 
country in papers from Florida to California.

Sunday's The Washington Post had Special Section on the Festival, and 
you can find the package containing the complete festival schedule and 
many interesting articles online at

The opening event was a free staged reading of "Twelfth Night" held on 
Twelfth Night at the Kennedy Center:

'Twelfth Night': Bard Fest's Hot And Happy Ticket

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/01/07/AR2007010701309.html
 From the article:

The most startling line on the opening night of the Shakespeare in 
Washington festival was the one that snaked all the way around the 
Kennedy Center.

People began queuing four hours before the 6 p.m. reading Saturday of 
"Twelfth Night," the first of the 500 dance, theater and musical 
performances that will form the core of the six-month festival exploring 
Washington's evergreen fascination with the Bard.

Two upcoming events are discussed in the next two posts.
