Great idea.
I taped the 12th night you mentioned. He was fantastic in that.

Excellent!

Oh, and if you haven't seen the film Twelfth Night with Helena Bonham Carter, you must, it's *so* good.

Henry IV, Part 1, by the way, features one of my favorite soliloquoys ever, which includes these lines:

If all the year were playing holidays,
To sport would be as tedious as to work;
But when they seldom come, they wish'd-for come,
And nothing pleaseth but rare accidents.

I wonder if rare accidents benefit from quirky xylophone music, as happy accidents do.
