Paul Servini Bettie, did you record this? I remember playing Falstaff in this play way back when I was in school and I would love to hear it again. Where did you get it?


☯Bettie☯ It was a converted tape to mp3 file; alas no more - 'tis dead as a dodo.
:O)

Jeanette  "Astute Crabbist" I had to read this in college. Hotspur is one of my favorite character names from Shakespeare. :-D


☯Bettie☯ Whilst I much prefer the tragedies this BBC airing under the heading The Hollow Crown is fantabulous. Flister Susanna tipped me the wink of its existence.

Did you get to act in college?

Jeanette  "Astute Crabbist" No acting in college. I was one of those kids who had to have a job while at university, so I didn't have time for many extra-curriculars. I did have fun acting in high school, though. I even got to be Lady Macbeth at a summer theater workshop.

Neat!

I played Calpurnia in Julius Ceasar, and Eliza Doolittle in Pygmalion; can still be heard to utter 'I'm a good girl, I am' on occasion

heh! That sentiment a lie of course!!

Jeanette  "Astute Crabbist" Eliza, now that must have been fun! I don't think I could ever have mastered the proper accents, though. When I think of lines from that show, it's always the musical movie I'm quoting. It wasn't until a year or two ago that I finally read Pygmalion.
