Didn't Simon Callow perform all the sonnets at the RFH a year or so ago?

I have vague recollections of reading a few prior announcements for such 
a performance, but little else.

Kindly
CJ

Herbert Blau's experimental performance group KRAKEN did a piece in the 
mid-Seventies derived from the Sonnets called Crooked Eclipses.  Blau 
refers to it throughout his book Take Up the Bodies and there are  a few 
photos. Good luck finding any critical responses.

This from a Stratford Shakespeare Festival press release:

Mr. (Simon) Callow will be presenting a new work of his own composition, 
based on Shakespeare's sonnets.

Entitled There Reigns Love, this one-man show was commissioned by the 
Stratford Festival for the 2008 season. The production, to be presented 
at the Tom Patterson Theatre, will be directed by Michael Langham, the 
Festival's artistic director from 1956-67, who will also be directing 
the young company in Love's Labour's Lost.  Working from Shakespeare's 
text and the theories of distinguished British psychoanalyst John Padel, 
Mr. Callow will present the story he sees buried in the 154 poems by our 
greatest writer.

"Shakespeare's Sonnets are the sphinx of English literature. Every poem 
in the collection seems to speak of some intensely lived experience, but 
there is no logical emotional or intellectual coherence to them.

"John Padel's theory remains highly controversial, but what it does to 
thrilling effect is to liberate the poems' meaning, laying bare an 
unparalleled history of obsessive love, perhaps the greatest account in 
literature of the devastating course of Eros," Mr. Callow says.

Previews begin July 11; show closes Aug. 3.

David Crosby

Sonnet's do you know where a copy can be obtained?
