Today were off the Globe Theatre!

The Merchant of Venice is on the boards this afternoon.

This is something I have looked foward to for years.

And it is sunny!

  1. Do you have to travel incognito?

    Samuel, your question reminds me of the English Jesuit of those days who was going bald and feared that his bald spot looked too much like a tonsure for his safety. So he sent a coded message to the General in Rome asking whether he could wear a wig to hide it. “Picture those men risking their lives to carry that correspondence all the way to Rome and back!” The General’s reply was “Yes, but I may not give you leave to wear it after the Sanctus.”
