Once in a while, loyal blog readers, something I post on my "regular" blog nicely cross-relates to this blog. Today is one of those times.
On my regular blog, every other Thursday this year, I have endeavored to write an open letter to someone I either do not speak to anymore, or could never possibly find. Partly to gain closure, and partly to show gratitude where it is due in retrospect. This week, being the 450th "birth week" of Shakespeare, I wrote an open letter to the man who first truly complimented my abilities to perform Shakespeare well. He was an audience member in one of my first quasi-performances of Shakespeare. (Read the letter to find out what I mean by that.)
And, Happy (Belated) Birthday, Shakespeare.
