If Music Be The Food Of Love, Play On


The enjoyable performance of Twelfth Night just finished up and I am now at a nearby restaurant in Staunton for the cast party (tonight was opening night for this play). It was cool to see the same group of actors scrambled around in parts very different from what they portrayed in Lear last night. The same troupe will put on Measure For Measure tomorrow.

I saw two other versions of Twelfth Night staged: a student production in the Paul Mellon Arts Center at Choate in either 1988 or 1989, if memory serves, and then an all-star cast (Michelle Pfeiffer, Jeff Goldblum, John Amos, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, et al.) in Central Park in a Public Theater production when I was a Klingenstein Summer Fellow at Columbia. (You can read Frank Rich's New York Times review of the latter show here.)
