You couldn't be an MLA student and not know Lindi. She was everywhere.
I brought a Shakespearean stage manager onto campus last spring to help those of us who were going into Larry Friedlander's summer MLA seminar read "Macbeth" in advance of the class. Worried about turnout for a six-hour indoor event on a sunny weekend, I threw it open to alumni. Lo and behold, up shows Lindi. She was a fine Lady Macbeth, Hecate, Ross, Banquo... In fact, we doubled so many of the parts that I think at one point she was talking to herself, switching accents back and forth with fluency. We were in awe.
She claimed that Friedlander had given her a B- in the same class and that she had to atone for her offense against taste. I don't believe it for a minute.
It's hard to believe that someone so energetic is suddenly gone. Go well, Lindi. You are missed.
