   We went to see "The Winter's Tale" at the Actors Shakespeare Company at New Jersey City University. We always enjoy their performances-- an intimate theater and a fully professional Shakespeare company that really speaks the speeches trippingly on the tongue, as Hamlet told the Players. Seriously, there is nothing that makes me happier than being able to hear the words and phrases of Shakespeare. The acting clowning and sword fights are part of it, of course, but the beating heart of Shakespeare is the language.
