And the music! The music was great. Would be wonderful to have a recording available, or to know of equivalent available recordings.

As a result of his "crisis" Stephen Fry has made a series of films on depression for British television that are among the best things I have seen on the subject. Thank you Mr. Fry.

Does the candle wax ever drip down on you while on stage?

This is all very interesting but why don't you have your speakers identify themselves before speaking so we know who the hell is talking?

I wondered why Shakespeare, while writing the most profound plays, would write what we call comedies, stories of individual amorous situations, etc. I find the answer in Shakespeare's possible Catholicism: every part of life is of importance and value, the little to the great.
