"Professor's Suit Says Using Bard Got Him Fired" (Jan. 19), about former Arizona State University faculty member Jared Sakren, was quite disturbing to us. Most surprising was the blanket acceptance of false statements about ASU's commitment to Shakespeare and the classics. ASU, through its English and theater departments, offers four to six courses per semester in which Shakespeare is either the sole or a primary focus of study. The works of Shakespeare and other classical playwrights are taught routinely, with both traditional and nontraditional interpretations.

It is the very sort of tale Shakespeare might have told: complex, filled with politics, pitting man against woman, laced with intrigue and offering piquant commentary about the human condition. But this modern day morality play has an updated venue. It is being staged in the classrooms at Arizona State University. The issue of what educators may say and teach and whom such lessons may potentially offend is at the heart of Jared Sakren's unlawful dismissal case against ASU.

The La Jolla Playhouse's musical version of Jules Verne's "Around the World in Eighty Days" honors its source. It's all over the map. Time doesn't pass slowly in "80 Days," a big show that wouldn't mind at all journeying to Broadway, as did La Jolla's "Big River." There is a lot of scenery to applaud (Douglas Schmidt was the designer), and the story keeps you hopping (Snoo Wilson did the book, with songs by Ray Davies). Two men are trying to beat the clock here.
