For James Schaefer:
 
Stratford, Ontario, Shakespeare Festival performed *KBP* two summers in a
row to great applause in the small Tom Patterson Theatre.  I believe it
was 1990 and 1991.

For those in the Boston area:
 
*HENRY IV PART I* opens tomorrow at the American Repertory Theater in
Cambridge, MA (Loeb Drama Center, 64 Brattle Street), directed by Ron Daniels.
The production is set in a fictitious country with references to the American
Civil War and Northern Ireland.  Daniels is quoted in the Harvard Gazette as
describing the plays as "[being about] the cement-heads in power, monolithic in
their situations as various groups vie for power.  Order dies and the
boundaries of civilization fray, but eventually the country is reborn, stronger
than before."
 
Daniels' *HAMLET* received a lot of mixed reviews when it played at the A.R.T.
a few years ago, but most of the people I know who saw it (I missed the
production) were eager to praise or tear it apart...at least it was
interesting.
 
Anyway, PART I will run through Jan. 1st.  PART II opens Dec. 3rd and will
perform in repertory through Jan. 2nd.  You can catch both PARTs each sunday in
December at 2pm (I) and 7pm (II).

*The Knight of the Burning Pestle* was done by students of Basel University,
Switzerland, in 1969, and proved a popular success, even though it was
performed in English in a German-speaking city. I remember because I played
several small parts in the production.

Q: Boston Mock Trial

Shakespeare Electronic Conference, Vol. 4, No. 876. Wednesday, 1 December 1993.

Subject:        past events
 
Did anyone attend a mock trial at Fanueil Hall in Boston last month? The
question of William S.'s identity was to have been debated: William Shakspeare
of Avon, or Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford? Stratfordians favoring plain
William were led by Phillip Cronin, a lawyer, with Louis Marder (former editor
of the Shakespeare Newsletter?) as his expert witness.  Allan van Gestel,
another lawyer, argued the Oxford case, with Charles Vere, Earl of Buford, as
his witness.  Judge Edward F. Harrington presided. Just happened to see an ad
for the event while rummaging through last month's newspaper pile and was
wondering if it was fun (and who won?).

One last Shakespeare net reosource--you can also search full text, characters,
etc via an experimental service on Dartmouth's online library catalog.  It
is still available to the public, and accessible via the internet.

To John Cox:
 
I'm glad to see someone else annoyed about this.  I sent a private
message advising the student to get his/her body to the library, on
the idea that learning HOW to find the info was probably more
important than the information itself.  I did suggest a few sources,
like the Audubon Field Guide to the Stars and the Azimov Shakespeare
book, but suggested he/she should make the aquaintance of the local
reference librarian, that there was no free lunch on the Net.
 
The student wrote back that the Net was as good a source as any;
and apparently someone did provide the information.
 
Do I type myself (show my age?) if I believe that "Access to Tools"
(ala Whole Earth Catalog) is the whole idea?
