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 (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)
or write to Elliott Moffitt, Department of Humanities and Fine Arts, Bowie
State University, Bowie, Maryland 20715.
 
Thanks.
