Subject:        Q:  Othello on Bravo
 
To all;
 
Last night I was shacked to see Olivier's Othello on the Bravo channel. The
surprise was not that Bravo was showing it but that the 'network' has recently
been added to our cable and it is not listed in our TV Guide.
 
Since Henry V followed Othello and there was an ad for Macbeth, is there
something of a Shakespeare festival?  Bravo is now piped into every dorm room
and throughout our little town.  My students and I would be thankful for any
program lists or ways to find out the schedule.
 
Yours,
Michael Young
Davis & Elkins College

CHARTER (Proponent)
 
rec.arts.theatre.musicals:
 
Rec.arts.theatre.musicals is a new newsgroup intended to provide a home for
everyone to share their experience, ideas, thoughts, and comments about
musicals. It is a place to talk about musicals being performed on Broadway,
musicals being performed in community theaters, musicals performed in college
theaters, and musicals being performed in community theaters.
Rec.arts.theatre.musicals is a place to discuss subsidiary issues related to
musical theater, such as cast albums and televised performances. It is a place
to talk about the actors you loved in _______ and the actors you hated in
__________. It is a place to share gossip and tidbits about upcoming
performances and a place to ask questions about what musicals are playing
where. It is a place to ask about ticket prices.
 
Ask anyone you meet on the street, and chances are they've heard of _Cats_,
_Phantom_of_the_Opera_, _Oklahoma!, _Hair!_, _A_Chorus_Line_, and any of the
other hundreds of musicals that get revived time after time throughout the
world. Musicals such as _Falsettos_ and _Miss Saigon_ have helped us to deal
with contemporary issues in a way not possible in any other medium, while other
shows such as _Forever_Plaid have taken us back to the music of our youth. In
all cases, the spirited song from the stage seems to bear a magical quality
that sets our toes tapping, our lips moving, and our hearts free.
 
rec.arts.theatre.plays:
 
While musicals and operas seem to have captured part of the limelight for the
last few hundred years, plays have been delighting audiences since thousands of
years ago. Whether you're a fan of the tragedies performed at the City Dionysus
in 534 bc, Roman fabula togatas of 150 bc, Sanskrit dramas of the fourth
century A.D., liturgical dramas of the early middle ages, religious cycles of
the fourteenth century, morality plays of the sixteenth century, neoclassical
theater, naturalistic theater, or contemporary theater, rec.arts.theatre.plays
is the place to bring to light all of your dramaturgical questions and comments.
 
rec.arts.theatre.stagecraft:
 
This group would cover the art of stagecraft.
 
It was once said that the only thing you need for theater is some actors and an
audience, but the fact is we enjoy performances a lot more when there is some
kind of atmosphere and context. We've grown used to seeing magic happen on the
stage, but what it takes to create that magic is a lot of technical knowledge
that can only serve the world better if it is distributed.
 
rec.arts.theatre.misc:
 
There are a lot of questions that clearly don't fall into the discussion of
plays, the discussion of musicals, or the discussion of stagecraft.
Rec.arts.theatre.misc is a new group intended to cover all of these issues
including but not limited to topics such as: acting, directing, theater
management, design, and stage management.
 
What is the purpose of theater? What purpose is theater going to serve in the
twenty first century? Does theater need to serve a function? What is
appropriate dress to wear to the theater? How does one go about finding a
theater? How does one spell theater?
 
This group will replace rec.arts.theatre, which will be removed after three
months if the proposal passes.
 
Reasons for the Proposal:
 
Many rec.arts.theatre readers and many members of the USENET theatre community
have come to feel that it is time to break theatre discussion into chewable
pieces. Kill files aren't solving the problem because people still want to read
all of the messages--they just need them organized in such a way that it makes
sense (i.e., all of the musical messages are seperated from the play messages,
all of the play messages seperated from the stagecraft messages, etc). Prefixes
have been tried, but it hasn't worked. Many people have even left
rec.arts.theatre because it was too confusing. It is hoped that this
re-organization will provide a happy home for everyone to keep up with thier
personal interests in the theatre.
