Subject: Coriolanus @ The Hop
I post to alert you to a magnificent production of CORIOLANUS, a production from the Stratford Festival in Canada, directed by Robert Lepage, with the incandescent André Sills in the title role, presented in its only United States appearance at the Hopkins Center for the Arts, at Dartmouth College, Hanover, New Hampshire.
Friday, November 30, 8:00PM

This is a production that is faithful and expressive of the text, that does not shy away from the political associations to our troubled, muddied times, and that features mind-bending technology to create scenery and scenes that do not overshadow the text and the brilliant acting of this difficult and tough play.
Thank you for your constant sensitive, detailed, hard work, and for making sure that old WS is as bright and mercurial a presence now as he was then.
