Two for Henry P2 plus Streetcar

This week's Style has a nice little profile of the handsome Phillip James Brown (by Mary B) as well as my capsule review of "Henry IV, Part 2," included with my raving outflow of adjectives used to describe "Streetcar" at Sycamore Rouge.

I'll have supplementary thoughts about HIVP2 tomorrow (by which I mean later today). Feel free to bombard me with questions or comments in the meantime.\

(910 AM Update: As of 8AM this morning, Wichmann / Persinger have a healthy 4% lead. But don't get complacent! Get out the vote!)

Oooh, a good review is always a good thing when I'm nursing a stomach flu...thanks, Dave!

Patrick Stewart once wrote about the Henry IV plays that while Falstaff threatens to dominate Part One, he completely takes over Part Two.

1H4 was originally written and performed as The History of King Henry IV, no "Part One" billed or implied. Part Two was written in response to the public's (and the Queen's) riotous response to Falstaff.

Interestingly, 2H4 is Stewart's favorite Shakespearean play.

Wait a tick..."Depth & Girth"? Is that in reference to my false maternity belly??
