Oh my giddy aunt. I have had a most rare vision, past the wit of man to say – except that that’s the job I’ve set myself! It was a wonderful shared vision too – the delight of promenading at the Bridge Theatre (not lessened over time) is at least partially in its communality.
Folger Theatre, Washington DC
Well, this was my first taste of transatlantic theatre – a short* trip to Washington and New York coinciding with the Folger’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I’ve written before about the Folger library – well, it has attached a small theatre, based on the Globe (or possibly the Rose) but indoors and with MUCH more comfortable seating. And it was here that I saw A Midsummer Night’s Dream – not my favourite Shakespeare play, but one I know reasonably well.
