      Amy, thank you for sharing so much with us, I loved your interview on All Things Considered. I did not know this project centered around Shakespeare which is a love of mine also, beautiful work. I am so proud of you and hope to see you live out there somewhere. Congratulations and wishing you continued success.

      Good idea with the lyrics sheets; it got me to increase my pledge. If I get a choice, the cowrite with Mary Gauthier would be great.
