Great news!!! Dan Hodge's exhilarating recitation of "The Rape of Lucrece" returns to the stage for four nights, April 21 to 24, at 8 p.m., at Philadelphia's Wilma Theatre, Broad and Spruce Streets. What a wonderful bridge between the Wilma's magnificent "Hamlet" (which continues through May 2 with the incomparable Zainab Jah) and its upcoming." Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead!" Hodge turns Shakespeare's epic poem into The Bard's 39th play. His reading is clear and exciting. Its revival is a treat of which all theatergoers and Shakespeare aficionados should take joyful advantage.Tickets can be obtained by calling 215-546-7824 or visit www.wilmatheater.org.

Dear Jackie Atkins:

I recently stumbled across “The La Bohème syndrome,” in which you attack what you call the romantic but masochistic notion that great art requires suffering. 647 more words
