Subject: Information about "Voodoo" MACBETH
 
A colleague of mine is researching the 1936 "Voodoo" *Macbeth*; he has
searched the Lincoln Center archives and is presently going through the
materials at the Fenwick Library at George Mason University. He is
particularly interested in the following:
 
        * the reception of the production afforded by the New York
          theatrical community;
        * the comments of Orson Welles, the director, regarding the
          above and his motive for casting blacks;
        * the reactions of others to the production;
        * possible revisions of original opinions by theatre critics
          of the time; and
        * governmental comments and reactions.
 
If anyone can help him, please contact me by e-mail (

or write to Elliott Moffitt, Department of Humanities and Fine Arts, Bowie
State University, Bowie, Maryland 20715.
 
Thanks.
