Comment:        Re: SHK 4.0566  Re: *Twelfth Night* Production History
 
Robert R. Burke recently commented on the Riverside Studio production of
Twelfth Night directed by Kenneth Branagh in 1987.  The designer was Bunny
Christie, and lighting was by Jon Linstrum.  By the way, music was by Paul
McCartney and Pat Doyle.  I too enjoyed this melancholy interpretation of
the play, especially Anton Lesser's Feste.

In reply to Robert O'Connor:
 
Branagh's *Henry V* has been seen in the U.S. on both cable television
networks and once on broadcast this summer.  From what I remember of the
ratings, it did not do well at all in that medium (though my memory may be
faulty).  I guess most folks found it easier to catch some gratuitous cop
show that watch Shakespeare on a small screen some Saturday evening.

Speaking of videos, a chemist friend of mine asked me recently if there
were a video of the Peter Brook 1970 production of MSND. He'd seen it in
London and recalled it as "probably the most memorable experience of my
life."
 
I haven't been able to locate such a video, though there was much report
and even a book written about the production.
 
Does anyone know if a video exists?

A few years ago the Papp Ado could be rented for $100 plus postage from the New
York Shakespeare Festival on 16 mm film. The address is 425 Lafayette St., New
York City NY 10003. Call 212-598-7109. Not available on video so far as I know.

Alas, Ms. Henderson, the Papp *Much Ado* is not available. I tried years
ago to get a copy to replace the one I had taped off screen, to no avail.
Problems with the union contract, we were informed, when we wrote to the
Public Theater to inquire. Meanwhile, the old copy I had has since
crumbled, so that a VCR cannot pick up the signal anymore. A great loss, as
this was (I agree) a truly fine production.

Comment:        Re: SHK 4.0594  Re: *H5* and *Ado* Videos
 
This just in from the Samuel Goldwyn Company:
 
"The Samuel Goldwyn Company in cooperation with the educational
community, is reaching out to students across the country with its
film "Much Ado About Nothing"; [sic] offering a special "MUCH ADO ABOUT
EDUCATION" program beginning September 29."
 
They're offering discounted tickets, free study guides and posters.
Branagh's book w/ screenplay adaptation and introduction, notes, and photos
about the making of the film will be available at half price through October.
 
No doubt referring to recent SHAKSPER discussions, Goldwyn's Tom Rothman said,
"This is our way of giving something to the educational community, promoting
education and great entertainment, and proving, once and for all, that they are
not mutually exclusive."
 
Branagh states, "The importance of "MUCH ADO" is that it presents a whole
series of emotional and spiritual challenges that we--young, old, male, and
female--continue to face when we love...."
 
Check it out!  Call 1-800-6-GOLDWYN for the "Much Ado About Education" hotline.

Subject:        Ben Jonson
 
I'm teaching a Ben Jonson seminar this winter and am looking for
films or videos of Jonson plays and/or masques.  I know about the
1967 BBC production but have not located anything else.  Any
suggestions?
