The performance of « Count Basil » at this year's NASSR conference was a unique opportunity for those in attendance to share a theatrical experience with the actors in ways that are usually not available to readers and scholars of Romantic drama. In this brief reaction piece, I want to focus on two aspects of this experience: the interaction between the actors and the audience, and the discussion of the modern-day green room after the performance.
