Clarification on the last posting...

So - I guess I completely foggy when explaining the accent problem during the Shakespeare play.

The Director took some liberties with the play - and set this one in the Louisiana bayou possibly? One of the characters sounded like he just got off a shrimp boat. Anyway, I have noticed that when actors attempt a Southern accent they can either do it very well or just butcher it. Most of the actors that night did very well - they were very accurate with the drawl and inflection. Now, this one particular actor - who had a minor part - started out southern-ish, then became a little french quarter, then a bit German sounding? At the end, I could have sworn she had a Hispanic flair.

Regardless, the play was awesome and we loved it!!!
