I am thanking the weather gods that the temperature has fallen off a good 10 degrees since last week. It’s projected to be a nearly tolerable 82 degrees at curtain time tonight for “The Compleat Works of Wilm Shkspr (abridged)” tonight at Agecroft. I remember seeing this show at the Barksdale many moons ago with David Bridgewater, Richard Koch and someone else who I can’t recall (Update: as many have pointed out to me, the third actor was Michael Todero) (Update #2: Todaro). I have no idea who Richmond Shakespeare has cast so I truly don’t know what to expect tonight. Except for much zaniness and no small amount of sweat, both onstage and in the house.
I really like eraserhead’s idea, posed as part of the “Critics are not the enemy” discussion, for some kind of ongoing thread of reader-generated conversation at this site. I’ll be exploring options for that over the next week or so and see if I can come up with anything. From collaboration comes progress, right?
