    Thanks for your response, Norrie. Do you mean downstairs in the cafeteria? I'll be there at the next meeting. I acted in The Winter's Tale awhile ago. Its a fun, odd play. See you there.

    Is everyone OK with Mondays? I got the impression a week-end afternoon would be better. How about Sundays at 4?

    I guess my original post didn't appear. There are some great booths and tables downstairs--very private and comfortable. We waited at the entrance for about a half hour. Next time, I'll wait in front at the empty information booth, or you can just go directly downstairs. I am so sorry you had trouble.

    I didn't see anyone at Coffee Central. I was expecting a coffee shop not a place without seats.
    Id like to attend the next meeting, but I was very disappointed by the choice of Coffee Central.

    I'm looking forward to meeting you tomorrow, October 1, at Coffee Central, 7:00. I'll be in the front entrance, carrying something Shakespearean.

    Hi it's Emily I'm really sorry to have to back out. But I got my new class schedule and I have a class Monday nights. Maybe I can be involved at a later date.

    That sounds good. Is the nearest T station "Charles" on the Red Line?

    Coffee Central seems ideal--it's central, easy to find, open 24 hrs (not that we'll be there that long) and serves good coffee and food (according to Yelp). Come prepared to make a case for a play that intrigues and delights you. Also bring something to read that seems quintessentially Shakespearean (whatever that means).
    Now does Monday still work for everyone? If the week-end is better, how about Sat. at 3?

    A table reading is just fine for now. We should leave time for a discussion afterward. But location FIRST!

    Thanks to all of you who signed on--I'm looking for a "venue" (strange word), and I suspect most of you live in Boston. Would that be the best place for most of you? Let me know- I'd like it to be convenient for almost everyone--then you'll show up.
    Welcome (I feel I should say something Shakespearean: Salutations? Sirrah?)

      Newton is a 2 hour drive for me, however, if we can communicate online that would be helpful. find a link to Shakespeare scenes and blast it out to all members.

      I am not in Boston (Southern NH) so weekends are definitely best - I can't get down there after work. Anywhere in Boston is good, near public transport is best. Red line works for me too.

    As Mary Lynn wrote, this meetup is a work progress: I like Kathy's idea of flash mob Shakespeare, but I would love to discuss a play and read it together. Any thoughts?

    September 24, 2012

  • norrie e.

    Any responses to Kathy's suggestion re impromtu Shakespeare?

    September 24, 2012

  • norrie e.

    I'm thinking about a place in Beacon Hill, location to be announced. We can meet each other and decide on an approach: online, meetings, timeline etc. I am open to suggestions re format and play, so please come with some ideas.

    I think Boston-Cambridge is best for must of us. We can discuss this,but I wanted to do a full play--just as a company would. This would involve discussions about how to cut it (for length), what themes to stress and possible creative touches (Peter Sellers, BBC or mix). I'd like a uniform production that we can sink our teeth into.

    • Marianne P.

      Sorry, hit return too soon...Norrie, did you have a reader's group in mind (which is implied in your "about us") or something more production oriented? If the latter, the time commitment might be more than some of us have available...but nights to read and discuss, perhaps rotating to different towns, might be easier, especially to begin.

      September 23, 2012

    • Adam L.

      Hmm... cutting Shakespeare is usually a really involved process and requires a lot of familiarity with the play. I'll second Marianne and say that I like the idea of just getting together and reading and discussing a play rather than actually thinking of it in terms of production.

      Also, weekends are definitely better for me as I have class Mon-Thur nights :(.

      September 23, 2012

  • kathy H.

    How about locating scenes/scripts and assigning parts? That way we can look it over and then when we are ready to go public for an impromptu performance...wah-la! Please email scripts or links to scenes. Fight from Romeo and Juliet! something from one of the comedies.
