Ken, can you or any of the participants on SHAKSPER help?  I am trying
to find the first, or best, reference to the phrase "open text" -- the
_locus classicus_ as it were.  I am assuming it was coined in
connection with the debate over the text of _King Lear_, but I haven't
been able to track it down there or elsewhere.  Possibly I'm just not
looking in the right place.  I would be very grateful for any
assistance.

Subject:  	[New Theater at the Folger]
 
	[Edited by request from private correspondence. -- k.s.]
 
[...]     The Folger Shakespeare Theatre in  Washington, D.C. held an
open house for its new theatre yesterday (1/27).    Located in a rehabiliated
Department store, about 10 blocks from the Folger Shakespeare library, the
theatre is a thrust stage with 440 seats on a single level.  The old theatre
in the Folger Library, was too small to meet the demand for tickets.  Also
the Artistic Director, Michael Kahn, claimed the stage was difficult to work
with and wasn't particularly authentic, despite its decorations.  While some
may miss the intimacy of the old theatre, none will miss the hard seats or
the many obstructed views.  The first production in the new house will be
Much Ado, with Kelly McGillis as Beatrice.

Subject:      	Q: Hamlet videotapes for interactive multimedia?
 
	[The following query was forwarded to SHAKSPER at the
	suggestion of fellow member Peter Scott.  If anyone can offer
	any suggestions, I will forward them to the originator of this
	note as well as the list. -- k.s.]
 
A colleague and I are developing an interactive multimedia course on Hamlet.
It includes selected audio passages and still images from videotape; however,
we have had some difficulty acquiring permission to use the videotapes.
Therefore, we posted a notice on isaac* asking for suggestions including
public domain videotapes as well as those done by regional or college theatres.
Peter Scott saw my notice and suggested that I contact you.  We sincerely
appreciate any help you are able to provide.
 
Thank you in advance for your time and attention.

computing)
