Favorite Shakespeare Play

Measure for Measure

Shakespeare character that best describes me:

Rosalind

Favorite Shakespeare Quote:

All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages.

fAVORITE PLAY THAT ISN’T BY sHAKESPEARE:

Doctor Faustus

All time favorite ASC Moment:

The very first time I visited Staunton in 2004, I saw A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which was amazing. Puck (Doreen Bechtol) entered from above from what is known as “the heavens” – on a circus hoop! I feel privileged to have witnessed this never-since-repeated staging event!
