Sphinx, in her hat

Rest in peace, Lynn Redgrave 1943-2010

I count myself lucky to be among the people who saw her one-woman show, Shakespeare for my Father, when she brought it to Seattle in the early 90s. My favorite part was when she was talking about her crush on Richard Burton, who was a friend of her father's. "Ooooo Mr. Burton!" [hands flutter up by her face] But particularly about the time Burton came backstage to congratulate her on a performance. "I drew a chalk circle around the spot where he had stood, labeled it "Hallowed Ground" and no one was allowed to stand there for the rest of the run." I thought she was quite genuine and very, very human.
