MCTEER'S THE JEWEL IN THE CROWN ...

...but the Crown lacks Lustre... 

Rostand, brilliant and dashing in life-- appears attired as an accountant (and acts like one as well). please... a scarf, a sequin, ...he could embrace her with one arm and steal her rapier ...step back and tease her as in a Cyrano parody... "Jeune homme..." This is Broadway into the 21st Century! please ...some BRIO ! 

Yorick could cough a plume of ash and speak, "...Ah,once beautiful Boy, a perfect Prince, we gamboled (..etc.) "NOW BECOME A MAN." 

We're playing at PLAYING Shakespeare here! 

Still ...as the woman in line at the bar said to me, "I could buy a ticket to hear McTeer read the phonebook." TouchE
