Subject:        Shakespeare on Request

While we are plugging shows, below is another one that might be of
interest to U.S. West Coast SHAKSPER-ians. For those on the East Coast,
please see the ASP's Julius Caesar before it closes (I have no
affiliation with ASP; in fact, I first heard about it on this list).
Life events brought me to Boston in time to catch Richard III and
Measure for Measure, and I greatly appreciated both productions. I will
not make it to see Caesar, so I hope that some of you can.

I have a one-woman Shakespeare show in Sacramento. Here are the details:

Sarah Cohen's "Shakespeare on Request"
8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays
July 8-9, 15-16, 22-23, 29-30, 2005
Thistle Dew Dessert Theatre
19th and P Streets, Sacramento
$20, including dessert
$10 if you are a returning patron or wearing the costume of your
favorite Shakespearian character

There will be one dinner theatre performance on Friday, July 22. Dinner
will be provided by Gina's Caffe. The ticket price on that night will be
$34 for dinner and show. No discounts are available for the dinner
theatre night.

Additionally, because many patrons find that their appreciation of
Shakespeare is enhanced by the consumption of intoxicating beverages,
audience members over the age of 21 are encouraged to bring a bottle of
wine to the theatre, to enjoy along with their desserts. I will provide
some wine myself on opening night (Friday, July 8). Please drink
responsibly, and remember - the views expressed by Sir John Falstaff,
Sir Toby Belch, and Christopher Sly are not necessarily those of
Shakespeare on Request or the Thistle Dew Dessert Theatre.

Shakespeare on Request is a combination of improv, stand-up comedy, and
monologue madness. It was conceived, written and directed by Sarah
Cohen, with the assistance of William Shakespeare, Christopher Marlowe,
John Webster, and Larry the Skull. One actor (me) performs selections
from all 38 plays of Shakespeare, plus two bonus plays, over the course
of about 2 hours. The audience members (you) decide which selections I
perform, and in what order. Silly hats are donned, sugary treats are
consumed, and a fun time is had by all. Ask me what you will, I will
grant it!
