July Fourth in Utah

It is the 4th of July and the fireworks are over. We (Rosey, I, my brother Jerry, his wife Dianne and my other sister-in-law Margie) just had lunch with James Newcomb, who we saw last night at the Utah Shakespeare Festival as Coriolanus.

James Newcomb is the best.

We talked about Oxfordian connections to the play that are important to him, as well as much else about acting, both Shakespearean and non-Shakespearean.

He did an amazing Coriolanus, a really tough role in a really tough play, which is probably why it's not produced all that often.

We will see him tonight as Kent in King Lear.

I'm still pinching myself.

See you all soon. I hope that it will be at our own Michigan Shakespeare Festival in Jackson on July 21.
Happy 4th!
