    Now that I have read the comments, I am wondering if we, the posters, have to battle with Ms. Grayson every time we disagree with her opinion? I thought she was just a rather mean critic. Now I can see that she is cocky as well. Gotta love those New Yorkers!

    Response to this comment:
    All brushed up

    From one bard devotee to another and from one Shakespeare teacher to another, I can tell you that on the evening I saw Ms. Hudson perform Mrs. Shakespeare, she misquoted our Bard no less than four times. Whenever I heard something that didnt sound quite right to me, I wrote down the lines, then double-checked them at home. Heres a more obvious misquote: O for a muse of fire that would ascend/the greatest heaven of invention. I'm sure you see the error. Maybe she didnt make this mistake (or the others) every night, but she did on April 3rd. Irrespective of the line flubs, the piece is flawed on many levels, and I didnt want to waste time in the review picking the nits of Hudsons memorization skills. And regardless of our difference of opinion on Mrs. Shakespeare, please know that I have brushed up on Mr. Shakespeare.
