American Shakespeare Center this Winter

I just saw Measure for Measure at Blackfriars in Staunton, Va. I work for the American Shakespeare Center now, so take my opinion for what it's worth, but I really liked it this time around. Last time I saw it, I caught the matinée. I guess I shouldn't go to matinées. I hate matinées. Maybe I always have.

I don't have the stub because I got there just in time for curtain and was rushed in.

Pretty soon, they are going to do a bunch of Christmas plays, A Christmas Carol and Santaland Diaries. I am looking forward to seeing both. I've never seen a play by David Sedaris, and I have had a lot friends over the years who have sworn by his work. Excited.

Two actors, John Harrel and Chris Seiler are playing the elf, and I get to see both of them. Harrel is one of my favorite actors.

Another favorite is James Keegan, who will be playing Scrooge in A Christmas Carol.
