*Shrew* Version and Stradford Videos
Shakespeare Electronic Conference, Vol. 3, No. 334. Monday, 23 November 1992.

Subject: 	*Shrew* version and Stratford videos
 
I tracked down a citation to the San Francisco version of *Shrew* which
has been the object of several messages lately.  According to K. Rothwell
& A. H. Melzer's _Shakespeare on Screen_ it was performed in 1976 by the
American Conservatory Theatre, San Francisco and shown on WNET/13 in
New York City.  Its only apparently availability is through the
Museum of Broadcasting, 1 East 53rd St., NY, NY 10022 although you
might contact WNET.
 
As for Stratford videos...
 
When I was in Stratford this summer they had a petition going in the gift
shop to try and persuade the CBC to release videotapes of recent Stratford
productions for sale.  I signed and thought that I really ought to mention
this situation to my fellow SHAKSPEReans.  Perhaps a letter campaign to
the Festival for them to use as ammunition with the CBC?  As a librarian,
I would welcome the chance at purchasing some other video productions
of Shakespeare's works even if filmed stage versions.
