I was very surprised to find out about the Barry Kay Archive's most interesting collection and its vast volume. All this represents an enormous tribute to the history of the performing arts.

Barry's drawings that you have put on the website are an excellent teaching tool. It is really good to see both the preliminary sketches and the finished designs. The students think his work is stunning.

In August, I gave a talk to some final-year university students at the Australian Theatre Collection. The designs shown on the Barry Kay Archive's website really stood out from the rest of the Collection's material. It looked really good and seemed to interest the students who asked a lot of questions about Barry.

I am delighted that the website has come up so well. Very interesting and informative. I especially love the bit about Barry going to Europe without the broom... Fathers!

Now I have had a look at your pages for The Cunning Little Vixen. Their assembly seems to have progressed relatively fast. The images are excellent and clear in every detail. Most absorbing are the set designs.

The layout of your web page is a splendid example of how little is required to achieve a tremendous amount. Not only does it render the page user-friendly, but it also imparts to it its very own aesthetics and thus its personal flair which, I feel, is the only way of making it interesting and lively!
