Subject:        Doubling
 
Dear Colleagues:
 
The recent spate of questions concerning doubling has picqued my curiosity. Can
anyone suggest a recent book or article which deals with the whole question in
some depth and detail.
 
Many thanks.

I do not know if this has been brought up before, but is it just me or does
the movie "My Own Private Idaho" have resonances from the Henry's?
 
In case you haven't seen this movie, it stars Keneau Reeves and River Phoenix as
two male prostitutes.  Reeves' character is from a rich family and is
living on the streets with River Phoenix and his pseudo-father Bob (Falstaff).
When Reeves' father dies, he ascends the throne, so to speak, to receive his
inheritance.  Reeves' even rejects Bob when Bob tries to come to him.
 
What do you think?
 
Is this an adaptation from the Henrys?
 
-Brian

Is it my imagination, or am I correct in thinking that no book-length
study has been made of the history of women ON the stage?  I've just
searched the library holdings of the U of California and the U of Minnesota,
and have come up empty-handed.  I know that there is a subject heading,
"women in the theatre," but that's not quite what I'm looking for.  I want
to know which, when, where, and why women trod the boards for the first time
everywhere.
 
What clues, o oracles?
