Subject: Hamlet and Dr. Faustus in Repertoire
For those who were not in England during the summer of 1989, I would like to
note that the RSC was doing some wonderful pairings during that season. Not
only was HAMLET (in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre) paired with DR. FAUSTUS (in
the Swan Theatre), but A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM (RST) was paired with ROMEO
AND JULIET (ST). In addition, Shakespeare's CYMBELINE and Jonson's EPICOENE
rounded out a summer season of quite interesting "doublings."
