Subject:     David Bevington’s As You Like It, Broadview Press/Internet Shakespeare Editions Collaboration

 

I just received my copy of the first publication in the Broadview Press/Internet Shakespeare Editions collaboration: David Bevington’s edition of As You Like It.

 

The edition is available at many sellers, including Amazon.

 

The Broadview Press web site information can be found here: http://www.broadviewpress.com/product.php?productid=1086&cat=50&page=1

 

The following is the publisher’s description:

 

Both a witty satire of literary cliché and a tender meditation on the varieties of love, As You Like It continues to be one of Shakespeare’s most beloved and widely performed comedies. In the introduction to this new edition, David Bevington traces the complex relationships between the characters in the play, and explores the history of its criticism from Samuel Johnson to the twenty-first century.

 

As part of the newly launched Broadview Press / Internet Shakespeare Editions series, this edition features a variety of interleaved materials—from facsimile pages, diagrams, and musical scores to illustrations and extended discussions of myth and folklore—that provide a context for the social and cultural allusions in the play. Appendices offer excerpts from Shakespeare’s key sources and influences, including Thomas Lodge’s Rosalind and Ben Jonson’s Every Man in His Humor.

 

A collaboration between Broadview Press and the Internet Shakespeare Editions project at the University of Victoria, the editions developed for this series have been comprehensively annotated and draw on the authoritative texts newly edited for the ISE. This innovative series allows readers to access extensive and reliable online resources linked to the print edition.

Directed by newly appointed RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran, Julius Caesar is a fast-moving thriller about a struggle for democracy as well as a love story united by an explosive act of political violence between two men. Set in post-independence Africa, this film parallels the recent overthrow of dictators during the ‘Arab Spring’ as it explores the implications of political assassination and the unpredictability of its aftermath. 

 

Shot on location and in the RSC’s theatre in Stratford, Julius Caesar, produced for the BBC, features the original cast of a thrilling stage production whose cast of distinguished black actors includes Paterson Joseph as Brutus, Jeffery Kissoon as Julius Caesar, Cyril Nri as Cassius, and Ray Fearon as Mark Antony. 

 

After its run at the RSC and nationally, Julius Caesar transfers mid November to the Moscow Arts Theatre and will be the first full scale RSC production to perform in Russia since 1967. The tour is a legacy of the World Shakespeare Festival 2012. 

 

Produced for the BBC, the film was broadcast as part of the Shakespeare Unlocked season to celebrate London 2012. 

 

The DVD includes previously unseen footage in The Making of Julius Caesar 40-minute documentary, which features key cast and crew interviews.

 

191 minutes                       DVD £17.99

Speaking of Shakespeare

 

After memorable conversations in September with JOHN LAHR, senior theatre critic for the New Yorker magazine, and in October with Hunter College’s IRENE DASH, the Shakespeare Guild is pleased to remind you about two upcoming programs that will continue its focus on the classical tradition in the dramatic arts.

A Conversation with Director Nagle Jackson

    

Monday, November 19, at 7:30 p.m.   

National Arts Club, 15 Gramercy Park South

Not only has he earned acclaim on Broadway, at the Kennedy Center, and in other settings around the nation; NAGLE JACKSON was the first American to be invited to direct in the Soviet Union. As a producer he has enjoyed lengthy artistic directorships at the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre (1970-76) and at Princeton’s McCarter Theatre (1979-90), which has been recognized with a regional-theatre Tony Award. He has seven productions to his credit at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, along with shows in such settings as the Hartford Stage Company, the Seattle Repertory Company, San Diego’s Old Globe Theatre, and San Francisco’s American Conservatory Theatre. Mr. Jackson is also a dramatist and actor, and his many Bardic roles have included Autolycus (The Winter’s Tale), Bertram (All’s Well That Ends Well), Demetrius (A Midsummer Night’s Dream), Feste (Twelfth Night), Lucio (Measure for Measure), and Octavius (Antony and Cleopatra).

James Shapiro’s BBC Series on Shakespeare

    

Monday, December 17, at 7:30 p.m.    

National Arts Club, 15 Gramercy Park South 

No Charge, but Reservations Requested

 

As the author of such award-winning volumes as Shakespeare and the Jews (1996), Oberammergau (2000), 1599: A Year in the Life of William Shakespeare (2005), and Contested Will: Who Wrote Shakespeare? (2010), Columbia University’s JAMES SHAPIRO has established himself as one of today’s most prominent scholars and reviewers, with frequent appearances on the Charlie Rose Show and other television and radio programs, and with numerous articles in periodicals such as the New York Times. On this occasion he’ll preview a riveting segment from his latest endeavor, a three-hour BBC documentary, The King and the Playwright, which has been shortlisted for a major TV award in the UK. After Mr. Shapiro screens his fascinating account of the 1605 Gunpowder Plot against James I and his court, and its impact on the chief dramatist for the theatrical company that profited from the monarch’s own patronage, he and the Guild’s John Andrews will join the audience for an engaging discussion of the episode.

Looking ahead, we’ll soon be announcing details about a special GIELGUD AWARD gala to take place on Sunday, April 14, at the GIELGUD THEATRE in London. This benefit will feature many of the luminaries who graced our April 2004 GIELGUD CENTENARY GALA, which occurred in the same venue and was co-sponsored by the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.

Book Announcement: Performing Early Modern Drama Today

 

The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 23.0420  Friday, 19 October 2012

 

From:        Kathryn Prince < This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it >

Date:         October 19, 2012 11:16:48 AM EDT

Subject:     Book Announcement: Performing Early Modern Drama Today

 

Pascale Aebischer and I are very pleased to announce the publication of our edited collection Performing Early Modern Drama Today. I thought that it might be of interest to SHAKESPER readers, so here is the blurb along with a link to some sample material and the table of contents.

 

While much attention has been devoted to performances of Shakespeare’s plays today, little has been focused on modern productions of the plays of his contemporaries, such as Marlowe, Webster and Jonson. Performing Early Modern Drama Today offers an overview of early modern performance, featuring chapters by academics, teachers and practitioners, incorporating a variety of approaches. The book examines modern performances in both Britain and America and includes interviews with influential directors, close analysis of particular stage and screen adaptations and detailed appendices of professional and amateur productions. Chapters examine intellectual and practical opportunities to analyse what is at stake when the plays of Shakespeare’s contemporaries are performed by ours. Whether experimenting with original performance practices or contemporary theatrical and cinematic ones, productions of early modern drama offer an inspiring, sometimes unusual, always interesting perspective on the plays they interpret for modern audiences.
