Globe stuff  
I have been on vacation with my mother for nine days (more on that later, perhaps: we decided to do something really special and go to London and Paris; my mom had never been to either, and I had never been to Paris since I mostly haven't been anywhere but London, not that I am complaining; when a man is tired of London &c).

One thing we weren't able to do while in London, sadly, was see a play in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse; if we'd gotten to London a day earlier we could have seen Cymbeline (sob), but our trip fell right in the middle of the holidays, so while the Globe was open (I made good use of the gift shop), nothing was playing while we were there.

But here is a BBC Radio recording about Shakespeare's late plays, recorded in the SWP and featuring Simon Russell Beale among others:

I haven't listened to it yet, but I look forward to it.

nineweaving and I are headed to the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse/ Blackfriars recreated space in February for Tempest and Winter's Tale. Tickets were nearly sold out last October when we booked. . .

Thank you. We'll be staying with some of her large network of friends.
