Duke Orsino: If music be the food of love, play on, Give me excess of it; that surfeiting, The appetite may sicken, and so die. Twelfth Night Act 1, scene 1, 1–3 In 1977 Ed came to Malaspina College from the Oregon Shakespeare Festival to direct a production of Twelfth Night. I had first met Ed when he was playing Caliban in a production of The Tempest at the OSF. He was great. The production of Twelfth Night was a hit. Hundreds of school kids were bussed in for afternoon performances, and we played to SRO crowds at night. I learned a great deal about acting, directing and living from Ed Brubaker. He has been a friend ever since.
